Vision 2030 lauds MPs’ approval of Sessional Paper

NAIROBI, Kenya Dec 11 – Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat Director General Mugo Kibati has lauded Parliament’s approval of the country’s economic blueprint, the Vision 2030 Sessional Paper last week.

Speaking in Nairobi on Tuesday, Kibati said the parliamentary adoption effectively provides a platform for public ownership to enhance ongoing efforts to facilitate the integration of a national economic development policy.

“The Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat notes with gratitude the swift parliamentary debate and adoption of the Sessional Paper which will provide the impetus for the legitimate implementation of the vision,” Kibati said.

Finance Minister Robinson Githae had submitted the government policy document in the House on Tuesday last week after it had received the Cabinet’s nod last month.

Kibati explained that the Sessional Paper will help sustain and secure the implementation of Vision 2030.

“A key tenet of the Vision 2030 is underpinned by the fact that it transcends any government of the day and therefore must be owned by Kenyans of all cultures, races, religions and geographical locations,” Kibati enthused.

Geared at transforming Kenya into a middle income, globally competitive and industrialising country with a high quality of life in the next 18 years, Vision 2030, is anchored on three pillars – the Social, Economic and Political – and an auxiliary pillar known as the Enablers and Macro Pillar, which covers those projects, interventions and initiatives whose impact ultimately cuts across all the other three pillars.

With the adoption of the Sessional Paper, Kibati disclosed that efforts to present a Vision 2030 Bill before the next Parliament will reinforce and give detailed implementation frameworks for the Vision through successive regimes.

“Arising from the need to ring fence Vision 2030 as the country’s official middle-term national development plan and following the adoption of the Sessional Paper, we are now moving to the next phase by concluding the ongoing drafting of a Vision 2030 Act,” Kibati said.

“The adoption of the Sessional Paper by the Legislature in their capacity as the people’s representatives now provides the much needed anchor for Vision 2030 to be a people driven process,” Kibati said.
