While the issues raised are not new, Emmanuel Hategeka, the Chief Operating Officer at RDB said that the survey is an important feedback tool as it works as a benchmark to further improve the local investment climate.

Going forward, he committed to continue addressing the issues that investors pointed out.

Rwanda, however, has ongoing interventions to address these issues raised. In relation to skills development, the country has invested in technical education and partnerships with top global universities to set up campuses in the country.

The country’s economy maintained double digit growth in Quarter One of 2018, recording 10.6% growth – which was a slight increase from 10.5% from the previous quarter, according to figures from the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda.
