Industry Trend Analysis - Investment Openness Underpinning Infrastructure Market Appeal - SEPT 2017
BMI View: Openness to foreign investment and progress in cutting red tape makes Rwanda one of the more favourable operating environments for construction firms in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), particularly as efforts to diversify the economy into knowledge-based sectors see big-ticket projects take off in the logistics and ICT infrastructure sectors. The main drag on the market's overall attractiveness is its low GDP per capita, which weakens the overall demand profile for infrastructure and acts as a threat to social stability.
