In 2008, Kenya launched a new development blueprint, Vision 2030, aimed at transforming the country into a newly industrializing globally competitive middle-income economy. The JKP recently spoke with Mugo Kibati, who, until late 2013, was the Director-General of the Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat. We asked about how the program, which is based on three pillars — economic, social, and political — is faring.

In Part 1 of this series, Kibati says that the two biggest challenges are poverty and unemployment, with about half of the population below the age of 18. He stresses the need to retain more value on agricultural exports (like coffee, flowers, and tea) and boost tourism. He also strongly supports regional integration and mainstreaming women into the political and socio-economic fabric of society.

For more on Kibati’s views, see his address to the World Bank’s recent conference on Making Growth Happen: Implementing Policies for Competitive Industries; see also Part 2 of this series. ​​​
