She said the center will also enhance linkage and collaborations with other institutions all over the world.

Over the past few decades, China has provided a large amount of no strings economic aid to Kenya.

China has funded three Sino-Africa primary schools in Kenya. One of the schools was handed over to the Kenyan authorities in Taita-Taveta county three weeks ago. The China-aided Sino-Africa Joint Research Center at Jomo-Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is under construction, and will be completed by this August.

The construction of the Confucius Institute Building at University of Nairobi will be started in the very near future, according to the Chinese ambassador.

The International Language and Cultural Center covers an area of 10,560 square meters with building areas of 7,526.2 square meters. Fujian Construction Engineering Company will complete the center in 18 months.
