Casablanca, (ADV) – Kenya and Turkey are set to sign a double taxation avoidance agreement in order to boost bilateral commercial ties, a Turkish diplomat said Friday.

Ahmet Cemil Miroglu, Turkish Ambassador to Kenya, told a media briefing in Nairobi that both nations have already agreed on the text of the agreement.

“Both countries are closely coordinating in order to find the appropriate time for the two governments to sign the tax agreement,” Miroglu said when Turkey commemorated the second anniversary of the attempted coup in 2016.

Both nations have already signed a number of agreements including investment protection agreements.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Kenya in 2016 and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to visit Turkey soon.
