The GOK has trade facilitation agreements (TFA) through the WTO, EAC Customs Union Protocol, Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Protocol on FTA, the U.S.-EAC Cooperation Agreement on Trade Facilitation, Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade, and the EU-EAC economic partnership agreement. The nine COMESA FTA member countries are Djibouti, Egypt, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Sudan, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The other 10 COMESA countries that are not part of the FTA trade with Kenya on preferential terms, observing tariff reductions between 60 and 80 percent. The status of EU-EAC Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) is unclear currently because of the failure of Tanzania and Uganda to renew the agreement in 2016 and 2017, but Kenyan products continue to access the EU market despite the EPA impasse. Kenya was among the first countries to ratify the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) instruments. The AfCFTA came into force in May 2019 after attaining the ratification threshold by 29 members, but trade commencement was postponed from July 2020 to January 2021 due to COVID-19.
The 2010 Constitution prohibits foreigners or foreign owned firms from owning freehold interest in land in Kenya. However, unless classified as agricultural, there are no restrictions on foreign-owned companies leasing land or real estate. The cumbersome and opaque process to acquire land raises concerns about security of title, particularly given past abuses relating to the distribution and redistribution of public land. The Land (Extension and Renewal of Leases) Rules (2017) stopped the automatic renewal of leases and tied renewals to the economic output of the land that must be beneficial to the economy. If property legally purchased remains unoccupied, the property ownership can revert to other occupiers, including squatters. Privately-owned land comprised six percent of the total land area in 1990; government land was about 20 percent of the total and included national parks, forest land and alienated and un-alienated land. Trust land is the most extensive type of tenure, comprising 64 percent of the total land area in 1990.
We are truly honored to be recognized among the \"Top 100 Global Innovators\" for our second consecutive year. Our goal at OMRON is to become a company that makes its presence felt and gains the trust of people the world over by solving global social issues through our business. Toward this end, we are rolling out intellectual property strategies in tandem with our business and research and development strategies. In FY2017, we mapped out such intellectual property strategies for each business by expanding their scope from individual products to the entire business segment and then filed patent applications accordingly. We also kicked off a unique in-house training program entitled 'Patent Dojo' in FY2016 so that we can help our engineers to improve their patent-related skills and motivate them to have their inventions patented. In order to maximize our corporate value, we will continue to create high-value-added technologies and business models that strengthen the competitive edge of our business. We will then protect and make efficient use of them as intellectual properties in the form of patents, trademarks, and knowhow, thereby achieving earnings and business growth. (Kiichiro Miyata, Senior Managing Executive Officer, CTO and Senior General Manager, Technology & Intellectual Property HQ, and Senior General Manager, Innovation Exploring Initiative HQ)

The American dining experience is vastly different state to state and restaurant to restaurant, but still wildly different from other countries' expectations. American restaurant sales reached nearly $800 billion in 2017, according to the National Restaurant Association, but with Americans spending about $55 billion a year on dining out, that's quite a few tourists dropping serious money on American cuisine. 59ce067264
