The fourth Medium Term Plan (MTP) launched by the President in State House, Nairobi, is a successor of the third MTP 2018-2022 and the second last phase of Vision 2030 and will set the momentum for transitioning to the next long-term development blueprint.

“The Kenya Vision 2030 stands as our nation’s ambitious long-term development blue-print, designed to elevate Kenya into a newly industrializing, middle-income country, ensuring a high quality of life for all citizens by the year 2030.
