Country Info

countryinfoKenya is located in Eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Tanzania and Somalia. Kenya has a tropical climate along the coast, turning increasingly arid farther inland. Low plains rise into central highlands bisected by the Great Rift Valley, with a fertile plateau in the west.

Natural resources include gold, limestone, soda ash, salt barites, fluorspar, garnets, wildlife, hydropower, and rubies.

LANGUAGE
Kenya is a multilingual country. The Bantu Swahili language and English, the latter being inherited from colonial rule are widely spoken as lingua franca. They serve as the two official working languages. English is widely spoken in commerce, schooling and government. There are a total of 68 languages spoken in Kenya.

GOVERNMENT
Nairobi kenyaThe son of Kenya's founding president, Uhuru Kenyatta took up his father's mantle to become head of state in April 2013. Mr Kenyatta, ranked by Forbes as the richest man in Kenya, was born in 1961 shortly after the release of his father Jomo Kenyatta from nearly 10 years' imprisonment by British colonial forces, and two years before Kenya's independence.
Educated in the United States at the elite Amherst College, where he studied political science and economics, he is viewed as the top political leader of Kenya's largest tribe, the Kikuyu, who make up some 17% of the population.
However, he also appeals to Kenyans from different ethnic backgrounds, able to mingle not only with the elite he was born into but also with the average Kenyan, cracking jokes using local street slang.

ECONOMY
Kenya is the biggest and most advanced economy in east and central Africa, and has an affluent urban minority, it has a Human Development Index(HDI) of 0.519, ranked 145 out of 186 in the world In 2017, Kenya ranked 92nd in the World Bank ease of doing business rating from 113rd in 2016 (of 190 countries). Kenya is usually classified as a frontier marketer occasionally an emerging market, but it is not one of the least developed countries.

Kenya governmentThe government of Kenya is generally investment friendly and has enacted several regulatory reforms to simplify both foreign and local investment, including the creation of an export processing zone. The export processing zone is expected to grow rapidly through input of foreign direct investment. An increasingly significant portion of Kenya's foreign inflows are remittances by non-resident Kenyans who work in the US, Middle East, Europe and Asia. Compared to its neighbours, Kenya has well-developed social and physical infrastructure.
The Vision 2030 is Kenya's current blue-print for the future of economic growth. The long-term goals of this vision are to create a prosperous and globally competitive nation with a high quality of life by the year 2030. To do this, it aims to transform Kenyan industry all the while creating a clean and secure environment. The vision is separated into three different pillars: economic, social, and political governance.
