Why Kenya ?

One of the new 7 best emerging markets

Over the last past 15 years, GDP increased in Kenya by more than 440% (2016 versus 2001, current USD). Thanks to this growth miracle, Kenya is the largest economy in the East Africa Community. This robust and sustainable growth made Kenya the second most attractive FDI destination in Africa (World Bank, 2016 ranking). PwC ranked the capital city of Kenya (Nairobi) as the most attractive African city for FDI (2015).
