In addition to serving as Kenya's gateway, somehow I see the Coastal region in a different light.

The Coastal belt has massive potential for becoming a breakbasket region, serving the country's northern drylands in addition to improving food availability in the hinterland and helping lower food prices. The government needs to concentrate on improving agricultural practices in the coast, especially ensuring the availability of improved seeds, fertilisers and facilitating the development of networks of agro-dealers, etc.

Why wouldn' Rift Valley be the breadbasket? I always pictured the coast being heavy on indusry (manufactuing) and transportation.

Rift valley is the breadbasket it has just the right conditions for growing the best wheat etc. the coast is more transportation, cultural hub, tourism etc. i mean for vision 2030 they should be construction of a new city close to the beach called ocean-view city that had everything kenya could offer after all the coast is kenya's doorway

Who says a country needs only one breadbasket? The Tana River Delta region is also very fertile and with proper investment it can supply alot of food for the country or for export.

Kibati leaves Vision 2030 as five-year term expires

Source: Daily Nation

Quote:
Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat director-general Mugo Kibati has exited the state agency after government declined to renew his contract.

Mr Kibati, who has been at the helm of the secretariat for five years said he will be returning to the private sector from where he was picked in 2008 to head the agency.

“I am making an exit from VDS proud of the gains we have made and the numerous challenges we have also managed to overcome in the gruelling effort to firmly establish Vision 2030 as the national development strategy,” Mr Kibati noted in a statement sent to newsrooms. His contract expired in June.


I hope his replacement is as enthusiastic about the vision as he was

Kenya lines up raft of mega-projects on the road to middle income status

Quote:
A list of multi-billion infrastructure projects was released Wednesday that will be handed over to the private sector in a bid to make Kenya a middle-income status nation.

In a Wednesday advertisement the National Treasury said it had received approval for 59 projects that the government plans to execute through public/private partnerships.

The projects range from telecommunications, agriculture, health, energy, transport, real estate to water and sewerage.

More than a quarter of the projects involve construction of roads, railway, ports and railway lines, highlighting the government’s focus on improving transport to make it easy to do business in the country.

LONG-TERM SOLUTION
This is intended to improve the country’s business environment.

Treasury principal secretary Kamau Thugge said the public private partnership approach was long-term that could improve the government’s quest to realise a double digit economic growth rate.

“Kenya’s public/private partnerships is not as a series of independent projects. The national list of projects published here has been subjected to a series of sustainability checks and has been granted formal clearance by the Cabinet to proceed for development,” Mr Thugge said.

PROJECTS

Projects under the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure include construction of major highways, maintenance of the green field terminal at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and development of container terminals at the Port of Mombasa.

Construction, operation and maintenance of a railway line proposed to connect Jomo Kenyatta Airport and Nairobi city centre is also lined up. In energy, the government will work with the private sector to develop up to 4,660 MW of power from geothermal, solar and coal in the next 25 years.

In tourism, a marina will be held at the Coast, a first class hotel at the Bomas of Kenya and conference centres in Mombasa.

Separately, the Kenya Urban Roads Authority invited bids for 40 projects involving the setting up, running and maintenance of roads in different urban centres and municipalities.

Implementation of the plans is expected to yield good fortunes for the local construction sector and result in creation of jobs for thousands of youths.

As part of the government’s plans to help create jobs, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has invited bids for the construction of 60 technical training institutes across the country. This project is fully funded by the government.
