I read with interest the news that African Chief Executives had once again recognised Rwanda among the best four countries, on the continent where governments have a great interaction with the private sectors of their respective countries, to create a conducive business environment.
There is no doubt that Rwanda has indeed done a lot to create a favourable environment for businesses to flourish and encourage both local and international investment.
Rwanda has indeed come a long way, with an almost non-existent private sector to talk of in 1994. Today, the government has done a lot, putting in place incentives to allow the private sector to get out of limbo and establish itself.
Today, we bask in the efforts and sacrifices that the government has put forth to allow the growth of the private sector. Yet, the government, through various policy actions, aspires to do more to continue this support.
Various reports by international organisations like the World Bank and Pricewaterhouse Coopers speak for themselves. Rwanda is definitely the new regional investment hub.
