Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Board Chair is reaching out to East Africans living in the USA
to invest back home.
Dr. James Mwangi, Chairman of Kenya’s Vision 2030 and CEO of Equity Group Holdings will
be holding diaspora meetings in Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Boston and New Jersey to discuss
“Emerging investment opportunities in East Africa”. The intention of this drive is to offer East
Africans information on opportunities to invest back home while living or working abroad and
control how their money works for them from wherever they are.
The forums will be held between 8
th December – 12th December, 2016. Attendees will be exposed
to available secure opportunities for investment back home.
East Africa’s economy is forecast to grow phenomenally this year. There are a number of reasons
for optimism across the region including increasing infrastructure investments, fiscal
consolidation and a developing private sector.
Kenya’s economy remains resilient growing at 6.1% in the first 6 months of this year compared
to a similar period when it grew at 5.3% in 2014 and 5.6% last year. Kenya is arguably the fastest
growing country in Africa as it stands today and the focus for the Kenyan economy to grow by
6% in 2016 is still feasible.
The World Bank believes that Kenya in particular “has the potential to be one of Africa’s great
success stories from its growing and youthful population, a dynamic private sector, a new
constitution, and its pivotal role in East Africa.”
