East African Breweries said on Tuesday its new 15 billion shilling ($149.25 million) brewery in western Kenya is ready to start production after a successful test run. The brewer, which is controlled by Britain's Diageo (LSE: DGE.L - news) , will kick off activity at the site with a two-year production run of its Senator Keg beer, a low-priced lager made from locally grown sorghum. Senator Keg has been one of the fastest growing brands for EABL in recent years due to huge demand from price-sensitive consumers, some of whom are switching from illegal drinks into more formal ones.
Britain's top share index retreated on Monday as soft Chinese data hit miners amid persistent worries over global trade. The blue chip FTSE 100 index fell 0.8 percent, dragged down in afternoon trading ...
Britain's top share index ended off earlier highs on Friday, as the pound recovered after Donald Trump said he looked forward to finalising a post-Brexit trade deal with Britain. The U.S. President's remarks curbed gains for the FTSE to 0.1 percent. The index, which is heavy on companies with foreign currency revenues, was earlier up as much as 0.8 percent after a Trump interview that appeared to dismiss hopes of a U.S.-British trade deal, depressing the pound.
Britain's leading share index rose on Friday, buoyed by a weaker pound which slipped after U.S. President Donald Trump threw cold water on a hopes for a U.S. trade deal. The blue chip FTSE 100 index was up 0.6 percent at 7,697.20 points by 0845 GMT, while mid caps also gained 0.6 percent. President Trump directly criticised Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, saying her proposals had probably killed off hope of a U.S. trade deal and that she had failed to take his advice on how to negotiate with the European Union.
Donald Trump's European allies will try to move on from a deeply uncomfortable start to the NATO summit yesterday and focus on operational issues such as the alliance's war in Afghanistan. NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg wants leaders to agree to fund Afghan security forces until 2024, despite public fatigue in Western countries about their involvement in the 17-year-old conflict. After Brussels, Trump heads to the UK for a three-day visit that will include talks with PM Theresa May, tea with the Queen and a major security operation to contain large public protests against his presence.
The UK will remain the strongest of US allies after Brexit, Theresa May has pledged as she prepares to host Donald Trump on his controversial visit to the UK. The PM's pledge came after Mr Trump said the UK was in "turmoil", that meeting Vladimir Putin would be the "easiest" part of his European trip and that he wanted to meet his "friend" Boris Johnson.

The problem, according to the U.K.-based company, was that the skill wasn’t compatible with how consumers use voice-assistant devices. Diageo was pushing information about the history of its brand on users, rather than providing them with an application that would make their lives easier.
