Kippra to hold key investment forum

The Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA) will hold a conference on January 20 to discuss the country’s inability to attract foreign direct investment. Vice President Moody Awori is expected to preside.

Kenya’s ability to attract foreign investment has continued to decline despite the coming to power of a new government and Uganda and Tanzania had overtaken Kenya and could soon threaten its long-held position as a regional economic powerhouse.
