KCB Group CEO, Paul Russo has affirmed the bank’s continued support to all 47 counties in a move that will see the bank emerge as a key financial partner in delivering on key devolved government commitments to support the devolution agenda.
Russo was speaking during this year’s devolution conference in Uasin Gishu County where he lauded the efforts by all devolution stakeholders to transform the face of Kenya by delivering on the promise to bring public services closer to the common mwanachi.
“To millions of Kenyans, devolution has presented them with an opportunity to address their local needs, choices, and constraints. It has carried the promise of a more equitable system of sustainable economic development for the nation to the extent that it has been lauded as the only plausible means to guarantee self-sustainability in a rather complex society that is Kenya.” Russo said.
Going into the future, KCB will lead the way in giving counties an opportunity to enhance their competitiveness as preferred world-class investment destinations.
“We are keen on building on the successes we have had for the last 10 years.To this end,we have an opportunity to enhance this value proposition with a focus on job creation and youth empowerment, health, education, and environmental conservation.”
