“Last year, the economy of our country grew by 8.6%. In some cases, this means that the growth only benefitted a few people, but in our case, this resulted from the contribution of the majority and it benefited the majority.
In the first quarter of 2019, there was growth of 8.4%, the second quarter was 12.2%. This shows us what is possible. It also shows us that sometimes we stand in our own way and do not achieve what we are capable of.
We are not only capable of achieving more but we need to reach these goals. Rwanda needs to develop, we need jobs for our youth and others, we need infrastructure, agriculture and food security and selling to the domestic market and beyond.” RPF Chairman Paul Kagame remarks at RPF Bureau Politique #BiroPolitiki2019
