Kenya’s leadership is looking to ramp up its PPP efforts as part of a new 10-year plan.

As reported by regional news Business Daily, Christopher Kirigua, director general of the country’s PPP unit, said a search will begin next week for high level consultants to help fortify the government’s efforts to deliver infrastructure.

The country is currently suffering from a challenging economic environment, which could dampen investor appetite in infrastructure projects.

“The macroeconomic environment, the interest rate environment, the exchange rate environment are very critical for a very strong and successful PPP programme,” said Kirigua.

Over the last few years, Kenya has tendered a number of significant PPP projects, including the Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit Highway project.
