Bordered by Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia, you’ll find Kenya on the east coast of Africa. Nairobi is the capital city, the Kenya shilling (KES) is the official currency, with Swahili and English spoken as the two official languages.
Kenya’s GDP growth has hovered around 5% over the last ten years and it’s a key transport hub in East Africa. Kenya is also a significant financial centre. The new Constitution, introduced in 2010 brought with it a new economic and political governance system, which has had a positive effect on Kenya’s growth.
In a bid to further boost growth and employment, the government has introduced measures to enhance manufacturing, food security, nutrition, affordable housing provision. And it also aims to achieve a universal health system.
The Covid-19 pandemic has stalled Kenya’s growth plans for now, with supply and demand issues having a detrimental effect on the economy. The Government does expect further growth as we emerge from the pandemic, after seeing signs of a recovery once the economy reopened in the latter part of 2020.
Kenya is a member of the East African Community (EAC), the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD).
