African Infrastructure Tracker: Kenya

African Infrastructure Tracker: Kenya

Kenya is ideally placed in East Africa as the hub for trade and business interests, with sufficient infrastructure development driving intra-regional trade in Africa. Significant efforts are underway to upgrade and develop new infrastructure in Kenya to increase its ability to facilitate trade. Major industry sectors that expect to benefit from the planned infrastructure developments will be oil and gas (O&G), mining, agriculture, and retail.

The country has been plagued with high transport costs for many years because of insufficient, overused, and rundown infrastructure. Significant improvements have already been made to facilitate more efficient trade. Despite efforts to improve infrastructure, however, there are major impediments that still exist in terms of administrative delays and instances of corruption along these routes. Average transit times have been improving, and a concerted effort has been made on the part of the government to eradicate these issues.
