Currently the government is battling with Covid-19 pandemic that has lowered the economic expectations of the country.The revenue collection annually that might have been used in development of the country was diverted to fight Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result of the pandemic the economic growth of the country has depreciated leaving the country with debt after borrowing money from foreign states to settle different sectors of economy.This debt is a great burden to the citizens because they the one to repay it through taxations.

On the other hand, western Kenya should be focused on by country in achieving its economic expectations before vision 2030.The region has a variety of fertile soil that can allow agricultural activities without any soil disturbances.

The region has the ability to grow variety of agricultural crops such as maize, sugarcane that can be harvested and processed into the final products.The products can be exported to other foreign states hence generating revenue to the country.

Also western Kenya has several companies despite the challenges they facing they are always in position of running their operations smoothly.

The companies includes Mumias sugar company,Butali sugar company, West Kenya, Nzoia sugar company, Webuye pan paper among others.The country must therefore put western region as first priority in reviving it's economic growth after its economic growth was dampen by Covid-19 pandemic.

Despite the political differences that has been going on in western Kenya,the region can greatly be used in transforming the economic development of the country.This is because most Luhya people practice agriculture mainly crop farming and livestock keeping.

Through agriculture the country is much safer in developing its economy.
