Abstract [en]

This paper attempts to see if the comparative failure of Kenya in attracting FDI can be explained by some of FDI determinants such as market size, labor cost, infrastructure, trade barriers and government policies and operating conditions. These factors, especially infrastructure and government policies, seem to largely explain the weak performance of Kenya in attracting FDI. Poor conditions of infrastructure and other discouraging circumstances towards FDI has made Kenya less attractive to investors. The unfavourable investment climate was indicated by unattractive operating conditions, corruption, regulations and high-level of bureaucracy.
