President William Ruto is set to make his inaugural state visit to India on Monday, December 4.
According to a statement by India's Ministry of External Affairs, Ruto will be in the Asian country for three days and will engage in bilateral talks with various government officials.
Ruto will also hold discussions with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It was also revealed that the Head of State, who is currently at COP28 in Dubai, will participate in a business and investment forum in New Delhi.
"A Presidential visit from Kenya is taking place after over six years and is expected to strengthen and invigorate the bilateral relations between the two countries," read the statement in part.
According to the Indian government, Ruto will be accorded a ceremonial welcome at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhawan on December 5.
On the other hand, a state banquet will also be hosted by the Prime Minister in honour of Ruto and his delegation.
It was detailed that the ceremonial welcome was aimed at India's goal of enhancing its foreign relations with Kenya.
"A presidential visit from Kenya is taking place after over 6 years," India's Embassy to Kenya added in a statement.
Ruto, alongside other government officials, is currently attending the Climate Change Conference in Dubai which is set to end on December 12.
It is yet to be known whether the President will return to the country after the Indian trip or return to COP28.
Ruto has made more than 40 trips in under one and a half years since he took over from Uhuru Kenyatta on September 12, 2023. Meanwhile, there is growing concern over the numerous trips the President has made in 2023.
Notably, despite cutting down on foreign travel for other government officials, Ruto has maintained that his trips are necessary for the creation of jobs for the youth.
