President William Samoei Ruto has encouraged small businesses and the jua Kali sector to integrate modern technology in their operations.
This will help them engage a broader market, transact more and create new jobs.
“Technological opportunities have the undeniable power to change lives and businesses,” he said.
The President was speaking on Thursday evening during the 15th Anniversary of Google in Kenya at Karura Forest, Nairobi County.
The President said the Government was keen on partnering with Google in the provision of internet connectivity to schools.
This partnership would enable young Kenyans acquire market leading technical skills.
“The opportunity to implement Google’s Computer Science Unplugged in Kenyan schools can help us develop a globally-relevant Digital Workforce.”
