The Agreement sets out the general conditions for development cooperation between the countries, which is a prerequisite for enhancing the provision of official development aid system of the Slovak Republic. The agreement imposes Republic of Kenya to make efficient use of Official Development Assistance of the Slovak Republic, to take the necessary measures to prevent abuse or retention of funds provided under this assistance, as well as to guarantee non-infringement of the conditions under which these funds were provided.
