Chinese women living in Kenya have launched the Kenya Chinese Women Association.
The Chinese Women Association is more than a century old, and has members across the continent.
Organisers say the association will help foster Sino-African relations and integration to local society.
It will expand their influence in commerce, protecting women’s rights, and enhancing communication among entrepreneurs in the country.
The initiative has been welcomed by other associations across the globe and those in attendance, including China’s ambassador to Kenya, his wife, entrepreneurs and women representatives from the Kenyan government
