Kenya is the economic, financial, and transport hub of East Africa.  Agriculture remains the backbone of the Kenyan economy, contributing one-third of GDP.  Tourism also holds a significant place in Kenya’s economy. In spite of political turmoil throughout the second half of 2017, tourism was up 20%, showcasing the strength of this sector.  Now in his second term, current president Uhuru Kenyatta has pledged to make economic growth and development a centerpiece of his second administration, focusing on his “Big Four” initiatives of universal healthcare, food security, affordable housing, and expansion of manufacturing.
