The Kenya Flower Council attended the launched of the foreign Investment survey 2015 on May 12, 2015 hosted by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) in collaboration with the central Bank of Kenya and Kenya investment authority at a Nairobi hotel. The enterprise based survey will be undertaken from May to June 2015. It seeks to collect data on foreign capital necessary for the compilation of macroeconomics statistics.
This is the third survey after similar surveys in 2010 and 2013. The data collected will be used to improve on the quality of balance of Payments (BOP) and International Investment Position (IIP) statistics. In addition, data collected will be used for investment promotion and for economic and monetary policy formulation.
The foreign investment surveys will be conducted on an annual basis and going forward on quarterly basis. The findings of this survey will be released in September 2015. The results will be made available on KNBS website.
