Sahil Shah, Master of Public Policy and Management student at Strathmore Business School, was recently appointed as the Project Lead, Kenya Business Guide, an initiative that seeks to support the improvement and strengthening of the business environment in Kenya.
His appointment comes shortly after the Kenya Business Guide (KBG) launched its new project structure and strategy containing two new components, specifically focused on private sector development and economic policy on 24th November 2017. “Our new strategy is expected to bolster ongoing efforts in strengthening the country’s business environment that has received a significant boost after Kenya moved up 12 ranks in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index.’’ said policy economist Sahil Shah.
Sahil will foresee the implementation of the new strategy which introduces a focus on improving access to value-added information on both the private and public sector prerequisites in the effective functioning of business.
