Recent macroeconomic and financial developments
Kenya’s economy has been hurt by the COVID–19 pandemic. In 2020, GDP growth is expected to decelerate to 1.4% from 5.4% in 2019. Growth is supported by agriculture, while weaknesses in services and industry have had a dampening effect. Domestic demand is subdued while external demand has neither helped nor hurt growth.
