The Role Of Vision 2030 In Kenya

Vision 2030 contains numerous development programs aimed at improving the lives of Kenyans. The vision was developed in the year 2008 whose complete implementation is anticipated in 2030.

The blue print contains long term strategic plans for the country. The overall goal of vision 2030 is to better the living standards for Kenyan citizens. There are three major pillars that are at the core of vision 2030. These pillars include; social pillar, political pillar and economic pillar.

The economic pillars contain strategies aimed at achieving economic prosperity by increasing GDP. Under the economic pillar, the government sought to improve various sectors of the economy. These include improving financial services, tourism, manufacturing, agriculture, IT and wholesale and retail trade. These sectors have experienced tremendous growth since the inception of vision 2030.

The purpose of the political pillar was to unite the country despite the ideological differences. The political pillar seeks to promote accountability and transparency from leaders, it also assures citizens of security, encourage the rule of law and promote better electoral processes. 

The political pillar has attempted to eliminate historical injustices and help Kenyans reason without tribal bias. This is due owing to the fact that Kenya politics are gravely affected by tribalism which divides Kenyans during elections.

The social pillar of vision 2030 aims at improving the lives of Kenyans. The government targeted the most important aspect of a person’s social life in developing this pillar. The focal point was laid on: health, youth and sports, environment, education, gender and social development and housing. This has encouraged social development of Kenyans.

The country has made transformations in its industries, infrastructure, education sector, health sector and financial sector. Many investors have invested in the country following the unveiling of the ambitious vision 2030. This has been achieved through partnership between the public and private sector.
