Future drivers of growth in Rwanda : innovation, integration, agglomeration, and competition, Paperback / softback Book

Future drivers of growth in Rwanda : innovation, integration, agglomeration, and competition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A strong and widely acknowledged record of economic success-including a three-and-a-half-fold increase in per capita income since 1994--places Rwanda among the world's fastest--growing economies.

Traumatic memories of the 1994 genocide are gradually fading, as associations begin to take a more positive form--of a nation on the rise, powered by human resilience, a sense of common purpose, and a purposeful government.

Past successes and a sense of frailty have fuelled aspirations for a secure, prosperous, and modern future.

Sustaining high rates of economic growth is at the heart of these ambitions.

Recent formulations of the nation's Vision 2050 set a target of achieving upper-middle-income status by 2035 and high-income status by 2050.

Future Drivers of Growth in Rwanda: Innovation, Integration, Agglomeration, and Competition, a joint undertaking by experts from Rwanda and the World Bank Group, evaluates the country's possibilities and options in this endeavour.

The report identifies four essential drivers of growth--innovation, integration, agglomeration, and competition--and reforms in six priority areas: human capital development, export dynamism and regional integration, well-managed urbanization, competitive domestic enterprises, agricultural modernization, and capable and accountable public institutions.
