Imports in Kenya

Kenya Imports (%) | Economic News & Forecasts

Kenya - Imports (percent change)

The economy is likely performing well compared to its regional peers so far in 2022, amid healthy credit growth and strong activity in the construction, IT, retail, transport and manufacturing sectors. That said, growth is likely easing from 2021. The war in Ukraine, global supply constraints and the domestic drought have spurred both consumer and producer price pressures in recent months. Survey data suggests this is eating into demand somewhat, with the private-sector PMI averaging lower in the first five months of 2022 relative to last year. Moreover, the drought is hurting agricultural output and has raised the amount of people facing food insecurity to 3.5 million. In other news, in June the government reportedly backed out of a USD 1 billion Eurobond sale due to elevated bond yields, and is also considering rolling back fuel subsidies to limit the gaping budget deficit.
