BUSINESS PERSPECTIVES ON THE IMPACT OF CORONAVIRUS ON KENYA’S ECONOMY

Encouraged by Executive Order No. 2 of 2020 issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta which provided a platform to address the national emergency efforts on the outbreak of Covid-19, KEPSA engaged its members through a short survey in an effort to understand the projected economic impact of Covid-19 in each business sector. A total of 95 businesses participated in the survey drawn from 17 sectors of the economy. This is in addition to 32 manufacturers who were directly surveyed by the Kenya Association of Manufacturers and whose findings have been integrated in this report. The information collected is crucial to inform public policy for the development of a rapid response mitigation plan to minimize the impact of the outbreak on the Kenyan market.
