Economic digital transformation pushed Rwanda to 10.9% growth for the first time

(Ecofin Agency) - Measures initiated by the Rwandan government to achieve an Economic digital transformation are bearing fruits. For the first time, the country records a growth of 10.9%, the Secretary-General of the Ministry of ICT and Innovation, Irere Claudette, reported this week. 

According to the official, the country has undergone a 20-year process of digital transformation in order to impact the economy. The action mainly boosted sectors such as construction, industry, transport, hotels and restaurants, and public services.

At the level of public services, this growth has been fostered by the introduction of a digital platform that allows taxes and official documents to be paid online in order to reduce the risk of corruption. In the tourism and hotels segments, good performances are the result of the implementation of a digital portal that facilitates the application for a permit to visit the country's various tourist sites.

The Rwandan authorities intend to maintain this growth dynamic by strengthening strategies to avoid price fluctuations on the export market and to increase productivity.

Let’s note the World Bank has made a series of recommendations to the Rwandan government to support economic growth. These include reducing the prices of ICT goods and services, and stepping up the fight against cybercrime.
