For 2014, we have a positive outlook for Kenya's ports and shipping sector based on three main factors: reasonable economic growth in Kenya itself; a dynamic East African region (this is important because Mombasa acts as a trade gateway for many of Kenya's neighbouring countries); and finally, continuing signs that Mombasa port's ongoing congestion problems are easing. Granted, there are significant threats to Mombasa's almost monopoly-like role in this part of Africa, but they exist in the long termWe are predicting that a combination of relative political stability, rising investment, and Kenya's status as the commercial hub of a fast-growing region will underpin strong GDP growth. BMI is now projecting 6.1% GDP growth in 2014 followed by 6.2% in 2015. In our view Kenya's capital, Nairobi, and key port, Mombasa, remain well-placed as the commercial centres of an East African Community (EAC) enjoying a resource boom and 7%-plus annual growth rates.
