Rwanda seeks to build partnerships with private investors as part of its vision to become to a destination for agri-business investment and serve as a business hub for the wider region. Opportunities in the agricultural sector are being packaged as part of a Food Basket approach, based on priority commodity value-chains, located in specific highly productive geographical areas. These efforts will make a direct contribution to Rwanda’s agricultural development strategy through which it is tackling poverty and improving food security.
The Food Basket approach highlights significant private investment opportunities in specific locations around Rwanda, brought about by enabling environment and infrastructure developed by the Government. These opportunities are designed to fully exploit the natural competitive advantages of the land and climate, and access to key growth markets for Rwandan produce. By taking a Food Basket approach to attracting private investment, the Government of Rwanda is in a strong position to leverage these activities, in particular improving value addition and agro-processing.
