NEDPS.JPGAn export-led growth strategy is premised on the now acknowledged role of exports in national economic growth and development. The experiences of Taiwan and South Korea in the 1960's and 1970's, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore in the 1970's, China in the 1980's, and eventually India in the 1990’s, provide strong evidence that exports can play a leading role in supporting rapid economic growth, boosting the emergence of a modern manufacturing sector, providing employment, and reducing poverty. This experience, especially demonstrated by the quest of Bangladesh for export diversification, provides international benchmarking for Kenya’s National Export Development and Promotion Strategy (NEDPS).
