Kenya’s future offers both opportunities and significant challenges. It is a continental leader in information technology and has well-developed health and education systems relative to other lower middle-income African countries, despite average incomes being at the low end of that threshold. However, access to other basic services is poor and various corruption scandals have cast a shadow over development prospects. To shape a better future Kenya must improve the quality of governance and accelerate service delivery without sacrificing gains in other areas.
On 29 March 2017, the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KNCCI) launched the Working Policy Framework towards Micro, Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) Development in Oil & Gas Counties and officially handed it over to the PS Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperative Betty Maina and the Council of Governors for implementation. Gracing the event was Kenya Business Guide, which works directly with KNCCI technical team and executive committee in the development of research and policy documents.
