The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) recently announced its plan to increase the country’s tourism revenues to $860 million from last year’s $293 million.
According to Ventures Africa, Rwanda has enjoyed a spike in tourism in the past decade so much so that the industry is one of the country’s top earners of foreign exchange.
The government’s continued emphasis on tourism is in line with the RDB’s priority sectors, which include agriculture, investment and ICT alongside tourism.
Moreover, the country will soon have an additional tourism asset when the Kagali Convention Center, which will be the largest in East and Central Africa, opens in the near future.
