I am currently in Rwanda as part of my East Africa investment investigation and promotion tour. What a remarkable turnaround of a Nation.
I have seen first-hand a forward looking country with a clear vision to elevate to a middle income economy with political stability and well-functioning institutions, observance of the rule of law and zero tolerance for corruption. I have seen a new Rwanda where citizens and investors are free.
No wonder Rwanda is ranked as the most competitive place to do business in the East Africa region and 2nd in Africa by the World Economic Forums 2017/18 Global Competitiveness report.
From registering a company to getting necessary permits to start operation, everything is almost seamless ushering in a New Africa where bureaucratic bottlenecks no longer stand in the way of intra African and foreign investors. Invest in my Rwanda.
Macro-economic stability and low level of government debt with financial inclusion from 48% in 2000 to 89% in 2016, B+ ratings by Fitch citing strong economic growth buoyed by low public debt and confidence in the management of the economy in the short and medium terms are some of the tremendous achievements registered over the last two decades.
With the new investment law, Rwanda has an array of investment incentives for the investors ready to invest in the key priority sectors that include, Energy, Manufacturing, Tourism, ICT, Infrastructure and Financial Services.
There are many reasons to invest in Rwanda, from excellent investment climate to robust governance, investment opportunities, investor friendly climate and access to market. Rwanda has a 12.1 million people with access to 162 million East African Community market and the wider 430 million Common market for Eastern and Southern Africa with a duty free quota-free market access for goods entering the European market and American market through the American Growth and Opportunity Act agreement.
Footprint to Africa as a company is focused on creating partnerships and providing a wide range of solutions that will support Africa’s transformation and industrial growth.
