The Busi­ness End

Rwanda Business Travel Guide - - Front Page -

OVER THE PAST two decades, Ki­gali has played a piv­otal role in the coun­try’s re­build­ing ef­forts, which have sub­se­quently; en­cour­aged an in­flux of FDIs into Rwanda. Sub­se­quently with that in­vest­ment, the cap­i­tal city has wit­nessed a cos­mopoli­tan re­birth which has seen the ar­rival of an ar­ray of new sky­scrapers, in­ter­na­tional ho­tels and an in­cred­i­ble se­lec­tion of din­ing op­tions.

Busi­ness in Rwanda has been on an up­ward tra­jec­tory in re­cent years and with that has seen an in­tro­duc­tion of many prom­i­nent com­pa­nies housed within the ever in­creas­ing range of new build­ings across the city, in­clud­ing the BCDI Tower, Cen­te­nary House, Ki­gali City Tower and Ki­gali Convention Cen­tre.

Tourism has and will al­ways be an in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant part of the econ­omy for Rwanda and is one of the fastest grow­ing sec­tors in the coun­try. The boom in tourism came when the Rwan­dan Govern­ment iden­ti­fied the in­dus­try and a large in­flux of funds was spent on ren­o­vat­ing the ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties avail­able.

The coun­try’s cap­i­tal Ki­gali has been split into three ad­min­is­tra­tive dis­tricts which in­clude Gasabo, Kicukiro and Nyaru­genge. Gasabo is home to both the pres­i­den­tial of­fice and a large amount of the min­istry of­fices, while the Kicukiro dis­trict serves as the meet­ing place for a large num­ber of NGOs.
