Kenya – A Land of many Business Opportunities (A Deep Dive Series)
The January 2020 UK-Africa Investment Summit set out that Kenya was to be one of the UK’s key economic partners on the African continent into the future, with a new UK-Kenyan partnership announced to deliver significant private sector investment.
Kenya is one of the foremost partners for the UK in Africa. The January 2020 UK-Africa Investment Summit demonstrated the scope of the UK government’s ambition for its relationship with Kenya, with the announcement of a new bilateral partnership designed to channel significant private sector investment into the country.
This event will include country-specific insights into Kenya, shedding light on the current and future state of the UK-Kenya business relationship.
Kenya remains one of the fastest growing economies in sub-Saharan Africa. In 2019, the World Bank reported that Kenya’s economic growth averaged a significant 5.7% for that year. A resilient services sector, investor confidence and regional integration has boosted recent growth. Whilst Kenya has been hard hit by the disruption of the Covid-19 crisis, the country remains one of the most attractive partners for UK companies doing business in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Kenya Vision 2030, the country’s long term development plan, is aiming to transform Kenya into ‘newly industrializing, middle-income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens’. The government’s ambitious programme of economic transformation opens a window for British private sector investment to play a significant role. As Kenya’s population continues to grow rapidly, and macroeconomic integration increases across the African continent, the demands for foreign investment in Kenya are increasing.
Join us and a panel of experts to discuss Kenya’s current political and economic landscape, the opportunities for British companies doing business with Kenya, and how UK businesses can capitalise on Kenya’s economic expansion.
The discussion will aim to answer as many questions as possible - Members are free to email questions in advance.
