KER 2022 Stakeholder Consultative Workshop

KIPPRA held a two-day consultative workshop to receive stakeholder input for the draft Kenya Economic Report (KER) 2022. The event was held in Nairobi on 8th and 9th December 2021 with a virtual attendance to accommodate stakeholders who were not able to attend the physical meeting. The theme for KER 2022 is ‘Building Resilience and Sustainable Economic Development in Kenya’.

The report reviews performance of the economy during the preceding year and provides medium term prospects on performance of the economy. Within the context of the theme, the KER 2022 seeks to provide policy insights on ways to nurture resilience at the macroeconomic level and across key sectors of the economy that include manufacturing, trade, livestock industry, and the creative economy. Further, the report covers thematic areas that serve as enablers to realisation of national development goals, including Information and Communication Technology (ICT); Science, Technology, and Innovation (ST&I); shared values; and good governance.

The workshop was attended by diverse representatives from state and non-state actors; including the State Department for Trade and Enterprise Development; the State Department for Development of Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs); State Department for Livestock; the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK); the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA); the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA); the Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK); the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM); Uraia Trust; Twaweza; and the Creative Economy Working Group (CEWG).

The report will be revised and shared again with stakeholders during a validation workshop to be held during the 1st quarter of 2022. Thereafter, it will be finalized and submitted to the Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury and Planning.
