Kenya Vision 2030 is an economic development plan by the Kenyan government to develop several different economic zones in various parts of the country. The Kenyan government hopes that this plan will boost the tourism sector in Kenya. Few features like strategy that shines a light on Kenya's future, open for business in every sector, energy sector offers major opportunities.

what are the chances of vision 2030 actually being completed at 2030? i think it would take another 20 years to get there, lets say 2050.

double digit economic growth could get Vision 2030 accomplished. More than likely it would be the only way if you want majority of the population being middle income (at least $7K) in 20 years.

Infrastructure doesn't take that long to build if you have a serious government and work ethic that is. For instance Nairobi could have expansive, efficient highways, light rail/subway and BRT system built in as little as a decade if properly planned and funded.

What I am curious of is whether or not Kenya will follow the American-style growth model (suburban life.) or more of an urban-led growth. I was thinking urban seeing as Kenya will more than likely become a transportation hub for the EA region (encouraging rail buildup, etc.).

Kenya should be a developed country by 2050, with a per capita around $20K or higher. 40 years is a long time.

it appearsto be a well thought out plan. By the way does the Plan forsee $7k nominal per capita or 7k ppp per capita. Because to reach 7k nominal will take a considerable increase in economic growth

i get that part, but have you weighed in corruption, how long will it take to minimize it, because there is no wiping out corruption, even here in america, corruption still exists... for it to be wipped out you need the perfect gov't.... what is the time span to minimize corruption to less than 10%??

I know, that is why corruption needs to be fought and the new constitution implemented as soon as possible. You can never get rid of it, but you can fight it.

Main issue is that corruption has become a culture in kenya. I have not met many kenyans who are not ready to pay or receive bribes. We should get rid of this furst through re-education and tought laws like making it an offence to conduct corrupt acts in front of a minor. I know that sounds orwellian but think about it. Kids coming or going to school watch cops take bribes from their parents and asume its a normal thing to do. We need to atleast let the next generation have a corrupt free future.

well put ewengai. it is sad but corruption has become a culture in kenya. not to lose hope cuz there r people who refuse to pay bribes. i have watched my dad countless times refuse to pay bribes to cops, high schl headmasters, KPLC officials, airport custom officials, immigration officials. i know there are many other Kenyans like my dad standing up to corruption.

Combination but I prefer at-grade and less elevation and underground.

Hmm, good question. I would automatically assume that's ppp. But if Kenya's current nominal gdp is $36.1 billion, population around 43 million, then nominal per capita should be around $850 dollars. 850 times 1.12 (with 12 being 12% growth yearly in per capita income) and raised to the 18th power would give you $6,455 per capita by 2030. But of course, I doubt Kenya's income will grow by that much yearly anytime soon. So it's best to assume the only option to achieving $7K is to go by ppp (which was $1,700 last year).
