Speaking to The New Times, yesterday, the Premier said that the programmes to be promoted include good governance, social welfare, justice, economic development and others geared towards improving the lives of the Rwandan people.
“Over the next seven years, the Government’s programmes will focus on elevating Rwanda from being a poor country to a middle income country,” he said.
