Country Economic Forecasts - Rwanda
Real GDP growth is expected to improve to 7.1% this year, which is somewhat higher than our previous forecast of 6.7%. The ongoing recovery in Rwanda’s agricultural sector continues to stimulate GDP growth, with positive spill-overs in services and manufacturing sub-sectors. Our medium-term growth forecasts have also been adjusted slightly higher to incorporate stronger public investment – as reflected in wider fiscal deficits. Real GDP growth is expected to trend just over 7% p.a. over the forecast period.
