Cabinet on Thursday approved the medium term budget for the 2019/20 financial year as it endorsed the establishment of the Eastern Africa Regional Roads Authorities Forum (EARRAF).

The Cabinet meeting was chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi, and was attended by Cabinet Secretaries as well as Deputy President William Ruto.

Once established, EARRAF will provide a platform for the harmonization of road infrastructure in East Africa especially transnational roads in terms of design, standards, and costing.

EARRAF will bring together roads agencies such as KenHA, KURA, KeRRA and the Kenya Roads Board in Kenya, Uganda National Roads Authority, Tanzania National Roads Agency among others.

Also on the agenda was the recent 1st First Ordinary Session of African Tourism Ministers meeting in Nairobi.

The meeting resolved to push for the fast-tracking of the establishment of the African Tourism Organisation as a key agency for the promotion of the continent as a preferred global tourism destination.

The first African Tourism Ministers meeting held early this month in Nairobi brought together 27 ministers and Heads of delegations.

Dignitaries among them the UN World Tourism Organisation Secretary General Zurab Pololikashvili, a representative of the AU Commission Chairman, and the Global CEO and President of the Hilton Group Christopher J. Nassetta attended.

While in Nairobi, Nassetta paid a courtesy call on President Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi where he outlined his plans to expand the Hilton Hotel chain to the rest of the country specifically to the Coast region.
