Kenya central bank governor says growth predicted to hit 6% in 2019

NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s economic growth in 2019 is predicted to hit 6% in 2019, helped by stronger-than-expected performance in agriculture, the central bank governor said on Thursday.

“We expect growth to remain strong. We are projecting 6% as a baseline. It can be stronger,” Patrick Njoroge told a news conference.
