The Republic of Kenya is located in East Africa and shares a border with Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Somalia. It is the key player in the region and a communications and logistics hub. Disputed elections in 2017 briefly stalled the economy which had been experiencing robust growth since 2008. This economic growth has been boosted by a stable macroeconomic environment, low oil prices, a rebound in tourism, strong remittance inflows, and government-led infrastructure development initiatives. Key development challenges remain, though, including poverty, inequality, and climate change.
