Hope Magazine Rwanda January 2013 – Deepening Regional Integration

Rwandan policy makers view the East African Community (EAC) as a regional economic block that offers its rapidly growing economy access to new markets and an opportunity to reduce the disadvantages of being landlocked. The search for better economic prospects via regional integration that Rwanda is seeking is captured in the country’s Vision 2020.
In this road map, Rwanda seeks the potential advantages that regional and international economic integration brings to its economy as a key pillar of pursuing socio-economic transformation.
