We expect the president, Paul Kagame, to win the 2017 presidential election. He and the ruling Rwandan Patriotic Front will continue to dominate the political scene throughout the forecast period, supporting political stability.

Political crisis in Burundi will pose a security risk. At least 80,300 refugees fleeing instability have crossed into Rwanda since April 2015, and there is a risk of violence spilling across the border.

The fiscal deficit as a proportion of GDP will narrow from 5.3% in fiscal year 2015/16 (July-June) to 4.2% in 2016/17 as the government cuts spending and revenue begins to rise on the back of improved tax collection.
