Food, textile clothing, leather, paper, chemicals, non-metallic minerals, base metals, motor vehicles and other transport equipment were selected as priority industrial sectors.

Aurelia Calabrò, UNIDO Regional Director who covers Rwanda, said: “Knowledge of the state of the country in different areas of inclusive and sustainable industrial development is crucial to identify the impact that PCP Rwanda wants to achieve, as well. as indicators that should be targeted, based on a set of reliable information.

The industrial diagnostic study lays the strategic basis for the formulation of the PCP document which will be discussed by the government of Rwanda, relevant stakeholders and the UNIDO PCP Rwanda team over the coming months.

During the online validation meeting, the Rwanda Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MINICOM) recognized the relevance of the UNIDO industrial diagnostic study for the ongoing drafting of a new national industrial policy.
