The Rwandan economy, owing to various challenges beyond national control such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, has slowed down in recent years. The government put in place strategic measures to respond to the crises, and alleviate the pain on citizens and businesses. With the just announced 2023/24 budget, which will, for the first time, cross Rwf5 trillion, could this be a turning point for the economic growth to hit the pre-pandemic pace? We are joined by Victor Omurunga, a budget expert, on this week’s episode of The Long Form podcast to discuss Rwanda’s economic outlook vis-à-vis the country’s anticipated expenditures and geopolitical realities.
