Overview About International Trade in Kenya

Economic Overview

After weakening due to the country's political unrest in 2007-2008 and the world recession, the country's growth increased again to 4.1% in 2010 and should strenghten in 2011. The drivers of the growth are the agricultural sector (horticulture and tea), tourism and remittances from the Kenyan diaspora.

Kenya and IMF have signed an accord under the Extended Credit Facility program to implement a three-year program for 2010-2013. Priority is given to investment into infrastructure and energy (geothermy), as well as to spending related to the implementation of the new Constitution. A gradual reduction of the fiscal deficit and a tighter control of the inflation are also planned. The country enjoys reasonably well developed infrastructures, an educated workforce and  a strategic geographical location, factors which favor economic growth. However corruption, poverty and inter-ethnic conflicts are the main factors that the country has to overcome.

Kenya remains a poor country, half of the population living under the poverty line and unemployment affecting probably a quarter of the population.
