VENTURE AFRICA – Rwandan President Paul Kagame says his government will continue to provide incentives to attract investors to business opportunities in the country.

According to media sources, the landlocked state wants economic growth to remain at 11.5 percent every year, for the next five years. Rwanda also wants to drive poverty from 45 percent to below the 30 percent mark, and attain middle-income status by 2020 — no easy task for an agriculture-based economy.

While speaking to investors from China’s Zhenjiang Province, the President said his government will make the country more investor-friendly, as it aims to push through a transformation from its genocide past.
