The economic policies of independent Kenya have been essentially pragmatic, unencumbered by much in the way of overt ideology. To foster the entrepreneurial society and to increase the role of Africans within it is, perhaps, the most summary form in which the general aims of policy can be expressed. Formally, the policy is labelled African Socialism. Sessional Paper No. 10 of 1965, On African Socialism and its Application to Planning in Kenya defined the social and economic objectives of the Kenya government and outlined the policies through which these objectives were to be pursued. The policies set out there have been repeated and elaborated in the various Development Plans and in other documents.
