This study seeks to analyse the post liberalisation structure of
protection in Kenya, from 1990 to 2000. The study also analyses the
structure of protection arising from transport costs as a natural
barrier to trade.
The report includes an introduction, then section two is background
covering trade performance and policy regimes in Kenya. Effective rates
of protection from tariffs are computed and discussed in section three.
Protection and taxation arising from international freight costs and
domestic transport costs are covered in section four. The summary and
