Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the key factors that influence FDI decisions in Kenya and to explore the empirical relationship between FDI and economic growth in Kenya.The findings of the study reveal that the main determinants of FDI in Kenya are market size (proxied by GDP), stable macroeconomic policies and a level of human capital that is tolerable by investors.There is no significant relationship of human capital to overall economic growth which suggests that there is a shortage of skilled labour in the Kenya.
