Investment Information Pack

INVESTMENT:

Is a renewed economic activity governed by the renewed ambitions of man, with the changing demands of life and with its unstable conditions due to the availability of information; the world has become one village with resources competitively sought by big, international companies.

These companies seek the best conditions for the investment of their funds especially that the development of stock markets and the increase in their number, along with the diversity of high technology contributed to ensuring a quick turnover.

Rwanda government realized the need for investment now that the country has great potentialities, and its unexploded resources prevail its wide area. These resources included big and small projects.

Rwanda is a land of secured atmosphere conditions by its tropical locations. Rwanda also realized necessity of providing and investment atmosphere with the most stable conditions and political security to attract investors who are no longer barred by barriers of time and space.
