THE 29th ECONOMIC SYMPOSIUM

Theme: Harnessing Economic Resilience for Post-COVID Recovery

Date: 10th – 12th February 2021

Venue: Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel, Nairobi

Overview

The country’s economy is experiencing fundamental changes caused by COVID19 pandemic that has disrupted livelihoods, businesses and government operations. According to the Budget Outlook and Review Paper 2020, the economy grew by 4.9% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to a growth of 5.5 % in a similar period in 2019.  It is estimated that the impact of Covid-19 will further constrain the economy to about 2.6%.

The economy has so far been resilient not to be overrun by economic shocks such as locust invasion, drought, floods and COVID19 pandemic among others. With the lifting of containment measures and adjustment of incentives and reliefs to cushion citizens and businesses from the adverse effects of the pandemic, focus on implementation of the Economic Stimulus Programme and Post Covid-19 Economic Recovery Strategy will be essential to boost economic activity in 2021.

Themed Harnessing Economic Resilience for Post-COVID Recovery, the 29th Economic Symposium seeks to explore strategies for economic recovery, employment creation and access to essential services by citizens.
