The government is committed to working with county governments to unlock Kenya’s economic potential, President William Ruto stressed at Homa Bay during the Second Homa Bay County International Investment Conference. The President during the convention revealed that the National Government undertakes to step forward and intensify its support to devolved units for them to optimally exploit the vast investment opportunities that they are endowed with.

The goal, he explained, is to transform devolution from governance and sharing of resources to the provision of public service, the incubation of opportunity, facilitation of radical economic revival, and the enabling of prosperity at the grassroots.

President Ruto said the government is implementing the Bottom Up Economic Transformation Agenda through value chains to enhance productivity in sectors and industries at the counties. This is coupled with programs and projects being implemented in various counties to aid in economic transformation and an increase in infrastructure that’s instrumental in growth for Homa Bay and other countries.

“Under the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda, the government is committed to playing its designated role not only to strengthen devolution as a fundamental constitutional mandate but also because devolved units have numerous opportunities for rapid economic growth,” he said.

President Ruto cited the creation of special economic zones, county aggregation, industrial parks, promotion of the hustler economy, and strengthening of micro, small, and medium enterprises as some of the key interventions aimed at unlocking the potential of counties.

“As we have noted, our achievements so far bear clear imprints of intergovernmental collaboration,” he said.

The President said the implementation of programs such as subsidized fertilizer, community health promoters, affordable housing projects, and digital economy has transformed the social economic growth of counties. This is significant in improving the livelihoods of the people countrywide through the ease of operation through devolution.
