The Rwanda AGOA Action Plan is a publication of the USAID-funded East Africa Trade and Investment Hub, in collaboration with the Rwanda Ministry of Trade and Industry. The report outlines how Rwanda can continue to achieve sustained economic growth and progress toward poverty alleviation through exports under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). The report summarizes findings and recommended actions to take advantage of existing incentives, address constraints and seize available opportunities with a renewed market-driven mentality. It also presents the unique export opportunities for Rwanda to the U.S. market while also challenging all stakeholders to take firmer ownership of their role in engaging in export promotion activities.
The report systematically describes how investments in three priority sectors can lead to increased annual sales and new jobs in urban and rural areas.
