Dr. Ken Ohashi presenting

On Thursday 23rd June 2016, IDS hosted Dr. Ken Ohashi who presented a paper entitled “Can Kenya Become the Next Economic Miracle?”

Dr. Ken Ohashi is a former Country Director of the World Bank of Nepal and Ethiopia. Since 2015 he has also served as Senior Economic Advisor to the Presidency of Kenya.

Dr. Ohashi’s paper drew on the experience of East Asian and South East Asian countries. Comparing the growth performance of the Philippines and Thailand on the one hand, and that of South Korea and Taiwan on the other, the paper argued that more elite-dominated political economy systems in the first group failed in promotion of innovation and upgrading of industries, while more inclusive systems in the latter promoted the growth of competitive industries. The paper generated very interesting discussions on how to make the Kenyan political system more inclusive.
