Transport and logistics are at the core of Kenya’s economic narrative due to the country’s role as a trans-shipment hub for goods moving to landlocked countries in East and Central Africa. The Port of Mombasa is located on international container routes, serving as a well-integrated landing port for regional shipping networks, while land connectivity has also become a major focus, with a number of large-scale projects undertaken to link regional countries with the global market. However, while the authorities need to address the high cost of large-scale infrastructure projects if it is to continue successfully procuring funding, developments currently under way mean Kenya is well situated to become a major transport hub in East Africa. This chapter contains an interview with Silvester Kasuku, Director-General and CEO, Lamu Port Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport Corridor.
