Kenya remain a poor country wherein the creation of more jobs and the provision of higher levels of living for more people can only be achieved by sustained high rate of growth in the economy. Economy growth then, retains the importance which it has been assigned in every development plan which has been formulated since Independence. To be specific, given the rate of population growth and the continued preponderance of agriculture in the economy, the resources necessary, to increase the rate of growth in employment will be obtained only if the country achieves a 7 percent year increase in gross domestic product and a 6 per cent per year in the agricultural sector contribution to gross domestic product. The marshalling of human resources for development and growth involves host of complex tasks which range from programs, to improve health and nutrition programs of skill training and staff development and the formulation of an incomes policy which will assure a more rational allocation of the scarce human resources available for the production of goods and services. The government's policy toward technical assistance and Kenyanization will be designed to assure that the country has the manpower available with which to achieve its growth targets and implement essential programs.
