AGRICULTURE

Kenya is the regional hub for trade and finance in East Africa, with a service sector that represents more than 60 percent of GDP. The agriculture sector, with primary exports of tea, horticultural products and coffee, represents more than 20 percent of GDP.

Of the total land area, only 9 percent is utilized for cultivated crops, while no measurable amount of the total land supports permanent crops such as fruit- and nut-bearing trees.

CHALLENGES

Kenya’s low infrastructure has damaged its position as East Africa’s largest economy.

The country’s current environmental issues include degraded water quality from the inefficient use of pesticides and fertilizers.
