Pleasing economic growth in Kenya

Kenya’s economic performance outstripped expectation in 2018 according to the 2019 Economic Survey report just released by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics.

The report shows the economy expanded by 6.3% compared to 4.9% in 2017.

Cabinet secretary, National Treasury and Planning, Henry Rotich, said at the launch of the report that the growth was higher than the 3.0% recorded for the sub-Saharan region and 3.6% estimated for the global economy.

Favourable weather conditions in the country in 2018 contributed to increased production of crops and livestock.
