Peter Musila 2 years ago

The world bank in its recent report has indicated that the Kenyan economy will most likely grow at a rate of 5.8 percent in the year 2019 with a large attribution to the stable business environment.

In another report shared by Faida Investment Bank, titled Kenya Macroeconomic Outlook: 1H2019, agreed on the same with the argument that they expect strong growth in the first half of 2019 across the country’s diverse sectors.

High tourist numbers, suitable weather and the growth in the manufacturing sector will be the key reasons as to why the growth in the economy will be experienced.

According to the analysts, dropping oil prices and low food prices will see the inflation remain low at the range of 2.5 to 5.0 percent.
Diaspora remittances rise, high income from the tourism sector and low import levels will also play a key role in narrowing current Kenya’s account deficit.

According to the researchers, they project that the Kenyan shilling is to remain stable a short period. Also, the forex reserves will be on the same levels as recorded in 2018.

Faida Investment Bank report indicated that strong demand from investors and high liquidity in the market would play a significant role in having low yields on short term bonds.
