President Kagame calls for more investment in Rwanda


Rwandan President Paul Kagame has called for more investments in the country from both local and foreign investors, in a bid to accelerate the country’s economic growth to attain middle income status.

Kagame was addressing about 2,000 members of the local and foreign business community during the Meet the President dialogue at the Kigali Convention Centre late Monday in Rwandan capital Kigali.

The president said employment opportunities will be created if more investments are initiated. The employments will in turn create wealth that will lead to equitable development of the small East African country.

“My ambition is to see the country moving towards middle income status and this will be achieved through massive investments both local and foreign. We are aiming at having an inclusive development process where citizens can feel that they are part and parcel of the development agenda of the nation,” he noted.

President Kagame emphasized that his government is committed to the creation of an environment that is conducive for doing business.
