High-level dialogue on the implementation of the holistic productive capacities development programme for Kenya

16 August 2023
14:00 - 17:00 hrs. Radisson Blue (Upper Hill)

The high-level event is part of the ongoing work of UNCTAD in support of Kenya in fostering the country’s economy-wide productive capacities and structural economic transformation.

The Holistic Productive Capacities Development Programme for Kenya builds on evidence-based and data-driven assessments using the Productive Capacities Index (PCI) and a closer examination of Kenya’s policy, institutional, and regulatory frameworks, which provided the basis for formulating the National Productive Capacities Gap Assessment (NPCGA) for Kenya.

The Holistic Programme is designed to tap the comparative advantages of the country and relieve the key binding constraints to its development as articulated in the NPCGA.


The event is devoted to a high-level exchange of views on the sequencing and technical implementation of the Holistic Productive Capacities Development Programme for Kenya, which results from a careful assessment of the country’s gaps and limitations in fostering productive capacities and structural economic transformation.

The aim is to exchange views on the way forward in sequencing and operationalizing the key pillars of the Programme and its contribution to achieving the objectives of Kenya Vision 2030, the country’s long-term development strategy and to ensure the inclusive, sustainable, and green development of Kenya.

Participants will include senior government officials, senior United Nations officials, representatives of development partners based in Kenya, national, regional, and international experts in the field of economic development and representatives of the private sector and civil society, including academic institutions in Kenya.
