The LAPSSET Corridor Program

Eastern Africa’s largest and most ambitious infrastructure project bringing together Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan

Konza (Konza Technopolis ) is a key flagship project of Kenya’s Vision 2030 economic development portfolio. Konza will be a world-class city, powered by a thriving information, communications and technology (ICT) sector, superior reliable infrastructure and business friendly governance systems.

The Standard Gauge Railway is a modern, efficient transport system that will enable safe, comfortable travel for individuals and freight across the country and region at lower costs. Phase 1 of the Standard Gauge Railway from Mombasa to Nairobi has seen 472km of track completed, 56 Locomotives procured, 33 stations of which 9 are state of the art passenger terminals constructed, 1,620 freight wagons and 40 passenger coaches procured, 60 railway engineers undergoing training in China and 400 diploma holders taken through railway courses, 30,000 Kenyans employed and Ksh. 82 billion local content value.

The most immediate impact of SGR includes reliable and high capacity transport, reduced freight tariff, de-congested roads leading to savings in road maintenance, de-congested port, skills transfer and an increase in employment opportunities directly and indirectly through industries that are coming up along the railway line development. The second phase of SGR will also see 40% of the contracts allocated to Kenyan citizens.

Alongside numerous other investments in key infrastructure projects (energy, roads, water, TVETs) that drive investment, SGR will put Kenya on the path to industrialisation especially in manufacturing and value addition. This will ultimately improve our import/export ratio through the ports of Mombasa and Lamu.

Ease of doing business


Doing Business captures several important dimensions of the regulatory environment as it applies to local rms. It provides quantitative indicators on regulation for starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. Doing Business also measures features of labor market regulation. Although Doing Business does not present rankings of economies on the labor market regulation indicators or include the topic in the aggregate distance to frontier score or ranking on the ease of doing business, it does present the data for these indicators.

By gathering and analyzing comprehensive quantitative data to compare business regulation environments across economies and over time, Doing Business encourages economies to compete towards more efficient regulation; offers measurable benchmarks for reform; and serves as a resource for academics, journalists, private sector researchers and others interested in the business climate of each economy.
