Recovering from civil war in Rwanda (English)

In 1995, the Rwandan post-war government started liberalizing the trade and currency regimes and also key product markets. Following the massive return of more than a million refugees to Rwanda, the World Bank in June 1997 approved a 50 million dollars economic reintegration and recovery interest-free credit to support the government's reform program and assist in the resettlement and reintegration of those returning to their homeland. The return of refugees to their communities during 1996 and 1997 boosted agricultural production, which rose 14 percent between 1996 and 1998. The reforms spurred a rapid recovery of the private and financial sectors. Real gross domestic product (GDP), which declined by 50 percent in 1994, rebounded by 24 percent between 1996 and 1998.
