Kenya at a Tipping Point for Robust Growth Driven by the Telecommunications Revolution

Kenyans may experience a new wave of robust economic growth driven by several factors including the telecommunications revolution, according to the latest economic forecast by the World Bank in Kenya.

The economy is likely to expand at 4.9 percent in 2010 and 5.3 percent in 2011, says the Kenya Economic Update for December 2010. The economic report, Kenya at the Tipping Point, finds that growth of 6 percent is possible next year if no shocks occur.
