Ministry of Trade and Commerce

The Government of Rwanda (GoR) has initiated a broad economic reform agenda from which ambitious but achievable targets have been set for growth and poverty reduction. One of the key pillars of Rwanda’s Vision 2020 is “private sector-led development”, spearheaded by competitiveness and entrepreneurship.

Through the Ministry of Trade and Industry, which has a vision of achieving accelerated and sustained economic growth led by a dynamic and competitive private sector and a mission of facilitating Rwanda’s economic transformation by enabling a competitive private sector integrated into regional and global markets, while ensuring a level playing field and the protection of consumers, GoR is keen on the removal of Non-Tariff Barriers through the National Monitoring Committee hosted by the Ministry.

TradeMark East Africa

Besides having the regional products, TMEA has projects in each of the EAC Partner States, Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania. Country-specific projects play a key role in overcoming regional trade and integration barriers. The main challenges at country level are to translate the EAC Customs Union and Common Market into practice.

It is in that line that TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) partners with the EAC, other public sector ministries, departments and agencies, the Private Sector and Civil society, to run projects that aim at removing the NTBs in order to facilitate the trade in EAC states and the integration in general.

TMEA supports Rwanda NMC through grant and technical assistance.
