Country Report Rwanda 3rd Quarter

  • Published: August 2013
  • Region: Rwanda
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

The president, Paul Kagame, will dominate the political scene, and the governing Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) will face little political opposition.

Despite the deployment of a new UN force, the presence of dozens of militias and weak government control along the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) will continue to undermine political stability.

Progress on the government's privatisation programme will pick up. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects strong private-sector demand, owing to the high quality of the companies being divested.
