Country Insight - Rwanda

Rwanda: The Government expected that the economy would grow by 7% this year as mineral exports and the construction sector would pick up. It reported that the economy achieved a growth rate of 5.5% in 2009, thanks to the good performance in agriculture. However, the 5.5% growth rate is a slow down from 11.2% growth in 2008, and an average of 7– 8% over the last decade.
