The Business End
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.
