Potential Implications of the National Horticulture Policy on the Growth of the Cut Flowers Export Industry in Kenya

Abstract:

This study sought to find out the potential implications of the National Horticulture Policy 2012 on the growth of the cut flowers export industry in Kenya. The non-implementation of the said policy presents the problem in this study with research questions seeking to find out factors contributing to this state of affairs. The study anchors on the Classical Economic Theory’s key concept of comparative advantage that brings out the aspect of sustenance of Kenya’s competitiveness in the cut flowers export industry. A mixed approach research design has been used to present, analyse and outline findings into the research questions. One of the key findings is that for Kenya to maintain its competitiveness in the cut flowers export industry, it will need to deviate attention from external actors and expedite implementation of the NHP 2012. This policy will contribute to the sustainability of the export performance of not only the cut flowers sector but the horticulture industry as a whole. The study recommends a review of the strategies outlined in the National Horticulture Policy 2012 in order to realize the full potential of the cut flowers export industry in Kenya.
