Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday met with former Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) Governor Professor Njuguna Ndung’u.
The DP said that they held talks with the former CBK Governor around how to help develop the new economic model through the African Economic Research Consortium.
“The state of the global economy demands new thinking, bold ideas and fresh paradigms. We must include more Kenyans in the growth of our country. This is why we are proposing a bottom-up approach to develop the economy.” Ruto said.
The second in command said that the approach will ensure more resources are invested in the grassroots, greater economic participation and an expansion of the tax base.
“It is gratifying to see economic experts endorsing this approach and expressing willingness to partner with us to actualize this revolution.” Ruto further said.
