Kenya’s economy posted a significant growth of 6.3 percent in 2018 on a backbone of high growth in agriculture, transport and manufacturing sectors, the Economic Survey 2019 shows.

This is a marked improvement from the 4.9 percent economic growth recorded in 2017 when Kenya held a hotly-contested General Election.

Kenya National Bureau of Statistics Director-General Zachary Mwangi said the vibrant service sectors also contributed to the growth of the economy.
