Looking at the infrastructures and improved communication system in one of my recent company trip to the far south Asia in Thailand, Kenya has a long way to go to attain its envisaged goals as entitled in the vision 2030 plans.
The state of roads and the rail system is far much outstretched with modern rail system and effective police service.
In a nut shell everything modern even though the nation capital, Bangkok is still struggling with floods and lately political unrest. The City remains adorable.
Tourism sector, one of the highly valued foreign exchange earners second to rice farming is highly valued both within the capital city and all other surrounding centers and towns.
For security reasons, all taxis in the city have been marked and painted either green or red with the drivers’ particulars and photo coupled with the car registration details displayed inside the car.
In Chiang Mai the far North of the country that is renowned for elephants venture and some tamed wild animals like Tiger is a real tourism boom with hundreds flinging in daily. The same has enhanced a quick growth in the hotel industry.
In Chiang mai you will notice the long neck Thais with embedded necklaces. My trip guide said that the necklaces are used to ensure that they attain stability while walking. Yes, wonders will never cease. This Thai sub-tribe can be compared to the local Maasai’s except for the long neck.
The warmth amongst the Thais both men and women is a force to reckon on the country’s growth since hospitality is far much outstretched and no one can ever be bored with the citizens.
I talked to one of the taxi drivers, Mr. Chainarinth Nanakonphonas who declared that they have been in the business for three years and has managed to acquire at least two cars to supplement his business going by the rapid number of clients at his disposal.
The systems of governance, language and religion have tremendously ensured the country make the heights in growth.
Most Thais are generally Buddhists except for some Christians and other religion dotted across the capital and in the far North and South of the country.
However back in Kenya still crapped in divisive politics based on tribal lines and backgrounds it could take Kenya another one hundred years to match Thailand despite the nations' current tribulations and political hitches.
It has to be noted however the government has already set its envisaged vision 2030 plans which has set forward among others infrastructural growth. This can only be achieved through proper laid policies that hinge on good governance.
The national government must ensure that they wholly involve all the 47 counties in development issues as a way of developing the nation lest prepare for another scam involving the county bosses.
