Tej Kohli Global, Kenya
The Economist Intelligence Unit predicts that Kenya’s GDP in 2015 will grow at a healthy 5.9%, helped by ongoing infrastructure improvements. Better broadband access has boosted the Kenyan economy tremendously. The World Bank estimates that a 10% increase in the penetration of broadband in a country produces a 1.3% increase in GDP. And people in Kenya are getting broadband on the move. An impressive 100,000 smart phones are sold every month, accounting for 67% of total mobile phone sales. With such rising connectivity and all the business benefits the internet brings, Tej Kohli thinks Kenya’s economic growth will be higher than predicted.
