The Vision comprises of three key pillars: Economic; Social; and Political. The Economic Pillar aims to achieve an average economic growth rate of 10 per cent per annum and sustaining the same until 2030.

Vision 2030 Kenya – Implementation

The Kenya Vision 2030 is to be implemented in successive five year Medium-Term Plans (MTP), with the first such plan covering the period 2008 – 2012. While the ‘flagship’ projects are expected to take the lead in generating rapid and widely-shared growth, they are by no means the only projects the country will be implementing.

A flagship project only sets the pace for multiple vessels behind it. By the same token there are many on-going projects and yet others planned for the future by the Government and the private sector.
