Kenya Diaspora Development Collaborative and Confederation of Kenya Diaspora Organizations co-hosted a half day teleconference dedicated to revamping tourism in Kenya because of its criticalness to the socio-economic development of Kenya. The cooperation of the Ministry of Tourism- Kenya was also a partner in this Global Diaspora Week event.
