The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

The eco­nomic bloc is made up of Bun­goma, Bu­sia, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Kisii, Kisumu, Mig­ori, Nyamira, Si­aya, Vi­higa, Bomet, Trans Nzoia and Keri­cho. It was formed to serve as a one-stop shop for in­vestors. It iden­ti­fies seven strate­gic in­ter­ven­tion ar­eas — agri­cul­ture, ed­u­ca­tion, fi­nan­cial ser­vices, health, ICT, in­fra­struc­ture and tourism. The coun­ties un­veiled a joint eco­nomic plan to catal­yse their eco­nomic growth through joint in­vest­ments. It recog­nises coun­ties as key de­vel­op­ment units.
