Congratulations to the Government and people of Bomet on the development and launch of your first-ever county strategic investment plan!

To Governor Ruto, thank you for recognizing the importance that investment plays in development, and for taking action to bring the investment community together in one room.

USAID has a powerful partnership with Bomet, and there are so many things we have already achieved together.  We have been working in Bomet for a long time.   There’s a reason why you see the big USAID sign on the way to Tenwek Hospital.
