In this third episode of the US Kenya FTA Series hosted by Dr Melissa Omino, we are joined by Dr. Isaac Rutenberg the Director of CIPIT, and Lori Wallach, Head Director and Founder of Global Trade Watch, a division of Public Citizen. (link to: https://www.citizen.org/article/lori-wallach-director-public-citizens-global-trade-watch/) 

It is a great privilege to have Lori as a guest on this episode as she is a recognised expert in the field of International Trade with experience in this area for over 25 years, including testifying at Congress on NAFTA, WTO and other international trade agreements and their effects on global citizens.

This is a first part of the conversation, where Lori takes us through what her thoughts are on the proposed agreement between the US and Kenya, what questions Kenya should consider with comparison to other FTAs that the US has finalised in the last decade, and what these ongoing negotiations should consider.

Lori definitely leaves us with a lot to think about with regard to why we are going forward with the FTA as Kenya.
