KIPPRA senior management staff, led by Executive Director Dr Rose Ngugi, met the Principal Secretary, State Department for Economic Planning Mr James Muhati on 23rd January 2023 at the Treasury Building. The meeting, which was a follow-up to PS’s recent familiarization tour to KIPPRA, gave the management staff an opportunity to apprise the PS on the state of the Institute’s finances and human resources.
The PS promised to support KIPPRA in delivering its mandate and lauded the Institute for its role in public policy research and analysis. The PS underscored the importance of the KIPPRA-Treasury Macro Model (KTMM) in the achievement of the bottom-up economic plan.
Dr Ngugi thanked the PS for the support and noted that the Institute is committed to delivering on its mandate, which according to the KIPPRA Act is to “develop human and institutional capacities which shall, by undertaking economic forecasting, policy analysis and research, contribute to the formulation of medium and long-term strategic perspective for the economic and social development of Kenya”.
