Kenya is the most developed economy in Eastern Africa. The most recent World Bank Group economic update for Kenya projects that the country's economy will grow at 5.4% in 2015, rising to 5.7% in 2016. The growth curve has been steady and if the positive trend continues, Kenya is projected to be the first East African country to move from low-income status to middle-income status. The most recent Kenya Economic Update attributes the growth to the government investments in infrastructure, including railways, roads and energy, and strong consumer demand.

This delegation is connected to Municipal water infrastructure in Kenya business opportunity.
