Nairobi, Kenya

Kenya needs a transformation to support manufacturing and the knowledge and infrastructure it requires. It is from this transformation that plentiful and decent jobs can be delivered to our youth.

Uhuru Kenyatta President of Kenya

To make this vision a reality the government needs to overcome a number of challenges. With over 20 million Kenyans still living below the poverty line, a number of security threats and a population eager to see progress on job creation and public services, there are considerable demands on the government to deliver for its people.

Recent infrastructure and social investments such as expansion and development of Mombasa and Lamu ports, the two-fold increase in capacity at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the doubling of the technical training institutes to meet skills demand, and a focus on attracted investment to special economic zones, all point to a country on the move. This foundation is critical in realising Kenya’s potential.

President of Kenya

We are helping put in place systems and structures to monitor and drive progress on priority infrastructure and development projects, including those that increase electricity generation, improve roads and build a new railway linking Nairobi and Mombasa.

We also provide support to enhance capacity at the centre of government and improve communications so that Kenyans know what is being delivered and can hold their government to account.
