This Deloitte survey ranked Kenya as the second most attractive country for investment in Africa in 2020. This survey was released in September 2020, and despite the COVID pandemic causing depressed economic activity in various sectors, investors and CEOs from various private sectors still think Kenya is a vibrant economy that offers numerous investment opportunities.
I have attached the report here below, and while I have never conducted a comparative economic survey, I feel that this survey literature has focused so much attention to the service industry, where Kenya does extremely well already, which is why we seem to be a vibrant economy than the rest of our peers in Sub-saharan Africa.
Question is Wadau, how come there is so much variance between what the common mwananchi feels about our economy, and how international investors view our economy?
Watu wanalia vile economy ni mbaya but foreign capital and business leaders seems to disagree.
