Getting to the “How” of Growth in Kenya – Part 2
March 17, 2014 | Contribution by MUGO KIBATI

Mugo Kibati is the former Director-General of the Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat.

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 2 of this series, Kibati says that Kenya has been laying the groundwork for a "free market industrial policy," in which both the public and private sectors have key roles. He also suggests that the biggest obstacle to progress is changing mindsets, both domestically and regionally.
