The Kenya Economic Report 2020 was virtually launched on 19th August 2020. The annual report is KIPPRA’s flagship publication that assesses Kenya’s economic performance and provides medium-term prospects for the next three-years.
The report whose theme was ‘’Creating an Enabling Environment for Inclusive Growth in Kenya” had an overriding objective which is motivated by the Government’s quest for a strong foundation for broad-based economic growth and development, as envisioned in the Constitution of Kenya, the Kenya Vision 2030, the Third Medium Term Plan and the “Big Four” agenda.
The virtual launch ceremony was attended by more than 100 participants from Government ministries, representatives from county governments, development partners, KIPPRA Board of Directors and other participants. The ceremony was graced by the Principal Secretary, State Department for Planning, Mr Saitoti Torome who represented the Cabinet Secretary, National Treasury and Planning, Hon. Amb. Ukur Yatani.
KIPPRA Executive Director Dr Rose Ngugi and Board Chairperson Dr Linda Musumba display the Kenya Economic Report 2020.

Ukur Yatani, through a speech delivered by Mr Torome, thanked KIPPRA for the comprehensive report, noting that the recommendations would help the country in its recovery process post the COVID-19 pandemic. The PS thanked all the stakeholders for their contribution to the report and thereafter officially launched the report.
