Manufacturing in East Africa: Rwanda


Rwanda's business environment continues to outperform amongst its East Africa neighbours. The incumbent Rwandan President Paul Kagame has implemented investor-friendly policies in a wide variety of sectors, such as agriculture, infrastructure and ICT, that are geared towards supporting diversified growth in the long term. When paired with the country's East African Community (EAC) membership, this creates a conducive environment for trade and industrial expansion.

Investors also benefit from proactive government efforts to promote the country's special economic zones (SEZs). Rwanda has a SEZ that is an amalgamation of the free trade zone and industrial park outside the capital city of Kigali, which promotes current and planned future communications infrastructure, among other activities. Additionally, bonded warehouse facilities are accessible both within and outside Kigali for businesses that import duty-free materials. The development of Rwanda's operational and future SEZs is outlined in the government's Vision 2020 policy.
