On July 14, the Hub submitted the Rwanda AGOA Action Plan to Rwanda’s Ministry of Trade and Industry(MINICOM). The Action Plan demonstrates that Rwanda can increase exports, just like other land-locked countries have done, and provides a critical roadmap to Rwanda’s private, public and donor community stakeholders to expand exports to the U.S. in the most promising product sectors.

The report summarizes findings and recommends 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.
