, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 18 – The Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat Director General Mugo Kibati has applauded the pledges made by President Uhuru Kenyatta in his address to the joint sitting of the National Assembly and the Senate on Tuesday.
Kibati termed the speech as inspirational to stakeholders involved in the implementation of the Vision 2030 goals.
“At the Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat, we have positively welcomed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s commitments which now provide a platform to scale up legislative efforts to facilitate the delivery of the Vision,” Kibati said.
He added that this is the most comprehensive speech by the government so far that clearly outlines critical steps to deliver on the Vision 2030 plan.
He said Vision 2030 will be achieved if Kenyatta’s government implements the plan recently outlined by him in his address to the National Assembly and the Senate.
While addressing Parliament, Kenyatta said the government must deliver on Vision 2030 and continue to build the country’s infrastructure.
The government, he added, will also seek to present proposals geared at boosting national development such as amalgamating the youth and women funds to create a single fund to be administered at the constituency level.
To boost the Vision 2030 Economic pillar sector covering the Oil, Minerals and Gas Sector, Kenyatta’s legislative agenda will also seek to promote and regulate the minerals and mining industry.
Kenya’s social-economic blueprint is geared at transforming Kenya into a middle income, globally competitive and industrialising country with a high quality of life in the next 17 years.
Vision 2030, is anchored on three pillars, which include the Social, Economic and Political and an auxiliary pillar known as the Enablers and Macro Pillar, which covers projects, interventions and initiatives whose impact ultimately cuts across all the other three pillars.
