Bangalore, 20th February 2009


Slide2 l.jpg

Strategic Agenda

To create an enabling environment in which the IT/ITES industry flourishes to create jobs for Rwandans and to create a critical mass of skilled and employable persons for this emerging ICT market

Focus in the internal market (existing projects and Private sector in Rwanda). Once experience is gained in the domestic market and there is a pool of qualified and employable citizens, Rwanda can use the IT/ITES association to facilitate external clients.

Value Proposition

A strong commitment at the highest level of government – personal endorsement of the President of Rwanda supported by good governance

Relatively advantageous ‘Doing Business’ ranking.

Bilingual French-English language skills

Existing projects to construct a national broadband network and last mile connectivity to all parts of the country; 30 district offices connected by 2010
