The Republic of Rwanda investment climate assessment : Strategy for sustained employment and export growth (English)

This Investment Climate Assessment is based on a survey of 340 enterprises in Kigali and Butare that includes micro-enterprises with less than five employees, formal manufacturing firms, retail, construction, hotel and other enterprises. The ICA allows examination of differences in the investment climate across firms within and outside Rwanda. Similar surveys have been conducted in several countries in Africa and other regions which provide an opportunity to benchmark Rwandafs investment climate vis-a-vis its global competitors. In this context, Rwanda is compared to two sets of countries: that of firms in the East African Community (EAC) of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Burundi, and a wider group that includes DRC and South Africa regionally, and India, China, Vietnam and Thailand, internationally. The analysis is carried out from the perspective of the regional trade and integration agenda of GoR. Faster and more comprehensive regional integration can help Rwanda overcome some of its inherent disadvantages of an adverse geography including its landlocked location, limited natural resources, and small economy.
