Event Details

A platform for business leaders to get a prognosis from key policy makers of the year ahead and gain critical insights that would support strategic business decision making. The forum also provides opportunity to broach salient issues impacting business and explore collaborative solutions with policy makers.

According to the World Bank, Kenya's economy is projected to grow by 6.9% in 2021 (arguably the highest in Africa). This optimistic view is backed by the country's strong macro fundamentals that the bank is tracking, some of which are captured in the recently released World Bank Kenya Economic Update.

Join us as we unpack and take a deep-dive into the World Bank's unique perspective on the economic impacts, performance and imperatives for Kenya's much needed economic recovery given the COVID-19 reality.

Key themes to be covered:

1) Kenya's 2021 macro economic outlook (including a high-level E.A overview)

2) Key Economic Drivers, Risks and Scenarios (including alternative paths)

3) Policy priorities, Reform considerations, Gaps and realities

4) Micro-level economic data and perspectives
