According to the most recent Stanbic Bank Kenya Purchasing Managers’ Index, the economy is recovering.
According to the November 2022 index, Kenyan businesses saw increased demand for their exports in the international market in November 2022.
The index discovered that the increase in export orders continued from October figures, having increased in each month since April 2022.
Simultaneously, new order inflows to Kenyan businesses increased in November, extending the current growth sequence to three months. The rate of increase accelerated from the previous survey period, but it was still modest and slower than the long-run trend. Survey panelists frequently mentioned new clients and improved cash flow when rising new orders were recorded.
Overall, output levels in Kenyan businesses increased in November, following a slight decrease in October. According to the PMI survey, the upturn was only the third recorded in 2022 so far. Panelists attributed the increase primarily to a faster increase in new jobs and favorable weather. Construction and agriculture led the way in November, according to sector data.
