Mon Feb 3, 2014 5:50am EST

LONDON, February 03 (Fitch) Following Fitch Ratings' affirmation of Kenya's ratings on Friday 31 January, the agency will host a teleconference discussion at 11:00 GMT on Tuesday 4 February to discuss the fundamentals of Kenya's credit story and likely drivers of the ratings. Hosted by Richard Fox, our Head of Middle East and Africa Sovereigns, the discussion will offer an updated perspective on Kenya's economic and political environment after a visit to Nairobi in early January. Mr Fox will be joined by Carmen Altenkirch, Director, and Lead Analyst for Kenya. Key topics will include: - How likely is Kenya to hit 6% growth in 2014 and beyond? - Prospects and implications of its eurobond issuance - Prospects for its twin deficits against the background of a harsher post-tapering financial climate - Kenya's business environment: are reforms underway? - How much has Kenya's political risk subsided? A full rating report will be published shortly after the call. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session. Questions can be emailed in advance to: claire.dopson@fitchratings.com.
