The country’s overall population is about 55 million has made it a vital market in the East African region. The Government has prioritized efforts to improve public administration, planned scale-up in infrastructure projects and manage public resources for improved socio-economic outcomes. For the last year, official data report that industrial output grew at 12.1 percent, up slightly from 10.7 percent output in previous period, primarily because mining, water, and construction activities expanded. In 2017/18, mining and quarrying grew by 17.5 percent, water, transport and storage activities by about 17 percent, and construction by 14 percent. Growth in mining was primarily driven by significantly higher coal and natural gas production. The macroeconomic environment is expected to be stable in the near future but with the boost of reforms not far from fruition.
