The ICT sector has the potential to create jobs and to contribute to overall economic growth in Rwanda.The Promotion of Economy and Employment Programme (Eco-Emploi) supports the Smart Rwanda Master Plan by promoting private sector digitalization and business development in the ICT sector.
The growth of companies is facilitated through the development of better products and services by means of more competent employees and more capable management. Partners from private and public sector, amongst others the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MINICOM), the Private Sector Federation (PSF), the ICT Chamber, ICT companies and TVET schools, formed a core group to identify and coordinate all interventions.
Within this group, the ICT Chamber plays a crucial role to mobilise all actors. Meanwhile, Eco-Emploi takes on the role as a facilitator between the various actors from government to private sector and society as a whole.
