Oxford explores local business prospects

06 March 2014, 13:31

Nairobi - The Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) has commissioned the Oxford Business Group to conduct a research on the business environment in the country and come up with an economic intelligence report.

KEPSA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Oxford Business Group for use of research facilities towards provision of an economic intelligence report on various facets of the economy in the country.

“The Oxford Business Group report will allow investors to understand the business environment in every sector in Kenya,” said KEPSA Chief Executive Officer, Carolyne Kariuki.

She also said that Kenya had in the last four years dropped from position 82 to position 129 in the international rankings.

According to Oxford Business Group Country Director, Annie Michailidou, the company provided economic intelligence in 37 countries in the emerging markets.

The company according to her is present in 12 countries in Africa but Kenya is the first country in the East Africa region.

The firm would be looking at 500 respondents in the survey and has since engaged 200 respondents. 

Robert Tashiima, the Africa Region Editor for Oxford Business Group, said that they expected to finalize the report by June this year.

“We are based on the ground and therefore our findings will enable informative decisions since we will be focusing on both macro and micro-economic issues,” said Tashiima.
