Speaking in Nairobi, NSE CEO, Geoffrey Odundo said that the collaboration with the Shenzhen Stock Exchange is deliberate and strategic.

“There will be great potential for future cooperation. My visit to Kenya this time also shows our aspiration to deepen cooperation,” said Wenhai XIE, Deputy Director-General, Technology Management Committee of Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
