Effective next week, a bi-monthly dialogue that will bring all Rwandans closer to financial services knowledge will start taking place.
Last month, Rwanda concluded a week-long Savings campaign – to help Rwandans adopt the culture of saving and maintain future economic status.
The saving culture in Rwanda looks promising especially through the mirror of financial markets, but analysts say more aggressiveness is needed to boost savings culture.
For instance, ahead of celebrating its 10 years of existence, Rwanda stock exchange (RSE) said this week that over Rwf500 billion were exchanged through the market either in debt instruments or shares since it was established.
To continue pushing for saving culture in the industry sector, the ‘Industry lunch’ will be launched with an aim to bring country’s economic issues on the table.
Organised by Rwanda events Group in collaboration with Kigali Communications Associates, it will be attended by Government officials, Business schools representatives, Private Sector members and development partners will meet at Serena Hotel next week on Thursday.
They will review market trends, Industry developments and innovations, among other things.
Key speakers at next week’s event will include Rwanda Stock Exchange CEO Celestin Rwabukamba, among others.
Rwanda’s economy has maintained a steady growth of 8% for the last decade, but government wants more projects to push the economy to another level.
In its 7-year plan, the country has vowed to create 1.5 million jobs with more off-farm jobs created.
