Doing business in Rwanda Investment Guide


Rwanda is a small densely populated country in the Eastern side of Africa, best known as “The land of a thousand hills”. It’s among the fastest developing countries in the world with an average GDP growth rate of 8%. The country has a stable democratic government since the infamous Rwandan Genocide in 1994. Although the population declined rapidly in the early 1990s, later it has grown consistently to 12.9 million (2020).
The population is made up of two major ethnic groups: Hutus (85%) and Tutsis (14%). The two groups interestingly speak the same language and culture. Minority groups of the Twa ethnic community complete the list of native Rwandese, who accommodates approximately 90,000 immigrants from all over the world.
