Economy, Role of Government

railways, agricultural products, private individuals, economic development, economy

Since the colonial period, Kenya’s government has played a major role in the economy through its ownership of the railways, control of marketing for agricultural products, and establishment of state-owned firms. After Kenya gained independence in 1963, the government issued a series of five-year plans to guide economic development. Since the early 1990s the country has pursued the selling of state firms to private individuals and companies. This policy is largely a response to pressure from donor nations.
