#4 Kenyan Science, Technology & Industry

For Kenya's future ambitions, the Treasure of Kenyan Science, Technology and Industry plays an outstanding role. Through a strong educational sector, a rise in knowledge and education levels as well as thriving research, doors swing open for technology made in Kenya, such as M-Pesa, the mobile money banking system, software apps for agriculture and health as well as the pioneering Ushahidi disaster response system, all of which have proven successful internationally. Strong and innovative Kenyan industries and their quality services and products have contributed to the economic and social wellbeing as well as to the nation's reputation in the world, such as agriculture with horticultural products, tea and coffee, a strong NGO sector serving East and Central Africa, garment, food and other industries as well as a thriving ICT scene.
