Over 10 years ago, Kenyans voted to decentralize government, ushering in a new era of leadership with 47 governors and their teams taking up the reins of power in newly-created counties. Kenya’s decentralization is among the most rapid and ambitious devolution processes going on in the world.

The counties are at the forefront of the clamor for massive infrastructure upgrading and extension of the country’s infrastructure. The counties have highlighted a number of infrastructure projects that present significant opportunities for investors in the coming years.

Kenya as a country is endowed with a diversity of natural resources and the environment. The Environment is at crossroads in exploring opportunities for investments in environmentally safe technologies and sustainable exploitation of economically viable mineral resources to enforcement of environmental legislation.

Kenya has a well-developed building and construction industry with quality engineering, building, and architectural design services being readily available. For the past decade, this industry has experienced an upward trend and is open for investments in green building technologies, affordable housing, and a host of other construction needs.

With a fast-growing infrastructure, Kenya is at the apex of providing the ultimate manufacturing hub for the entire East and Central African region. The increasing investment in affordable energy (geo thermal) by the Kenyan government is providing investors with an assurance that the environment is ripe for heavy manufacturing.

Tourism is one of Kenya’s leading foreign exchange earners and the third largest contributor to the GDP after agriculture and manufacturing. Traditionally, Kenyan tourism has relied on wildlife viewing and the white beaches on the Kenyan coast.  More unexploited opportunities exist for investment in the counties.

Kenya is the leading player in the health care sector in East and Central Africa. Kenya has the right quality of trained medical practitioners and manpower. With this in mind, Kenya offers a ripe environment to exploit the opportunities offered by a robust health care industry in the region and beyond.

Kenya’s energy policy emphasizes delivery of quality energy services so as to ensure that Kenya will continue to attract investments in those economic activities of which energy inputs are basic to production at competitive prices. The country has traditionally been dependent on three forms of energy namely: petroleum, electricity and wood-fuel. Today, this status is shifting towards alternative forms of energy including: geo thermal, solar and wind energy. As the world goes green, there are lots of opportunities for investments in this area and specifically in green energy.

Kenya is among the largest consumer of ICT services in Africa. The government of Kenya is at the forefront of improving the livelihoods of Kenyans by ensuring the availability of accessible, efficient, reliable, and affordable ICT services. The government recognizes the role of ICTs in the social and economic development of the nation and has promulgated a national ICT Policy based on the Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation. This has opened up a host of opportunities for tech companies to invest in this ever-emerging market with loads of opportunities to spill over into the neighboring economies.

Agriculture is the mainstay of the Kenyan economy directly contributing 26 percent of the GDP annually, and another 25 percent indirectly. The sector accounts for 65 percent of Kenya’s total exports and provides more than 70 percent of informal employment in rural areas. The sector comprises of crops, livestock, fisheries, land, water, cooperatives, environment, regional development, and forestry sub-sectors. Many county governments are looking for investors who will help invest in value-adding technologies in this sector to be able to recoup higher returns on investments for the local populace.
