Ambassador Donald Lu has had a long and polarizing history in Albania. Todd Wood There are some truths that I strive to preach, for lack of a better word, in today's information-culture wars propagated in our corrupt mainstream media. Here are a few:
Rwanda is 2nd on the continent behind Mauritius in the latest annual report released yesterday. The report examines the regulations and conditions that enhance or limit business conduciveness. Last year, Rwanda was ranked 56th globally.
Kenya came third in Africa 80 globally followed by Botswana 81st worldwide. Over the course of the last one year, Rwanda implemented five reforms, making it easier to do business, especially impacting the small and medium enterprises. Among the reforms include improving construction permit process by increasing quality control and risk-based inspections.
The process had previously been termed as lengthy and time consuming in the last edition of the report as additional requirements saw Rwanda drop from 37th to th position globally in dealing with construction permits.
By upgrading existing systems to roll out the Building Permitting Management Information System, the time taken and cost to obtain permits reduced by at least 10 per cent, the City of Kigali says. The system allows applicants to track the progress of their applications online, through SMS and email.
Minister Vincent Munyeshyaka consults Clare Akamanzi before briefing media about the report. In the previous edition, Rwanda had slid 11 places largely due to a new law requiring businesses to make monthly declarations as opposed to quarterly, which was found to hold back businesses.
The country is currently the second in the world in property registration after New Zealand. Grace Nishimwe, the deputy registrar of lands, said this was made possible by availing information on land, registration of plots across the country and using the Irembo platform for property transfer, among other improvements.
Reforms by the Rwanda Development Board also strengthened the protection of minority investors. With the new reforms, the shareholders can sue directors while the reforms also clarify ownership of corporations. The world bank country manager, Yasser-El-Gammar speaks to the media after the launch.
He said, going forward, it might be beneficial to also factor in aspects related to reducing the cost of doing business, which is key for countries. Previous reports have indicated a major challenge of a disconnect between the implementation of the reforms and the business community.
Clare Akamanzi, the chief executive of RDB, told The New Times that this has since been corrected by ensuring that stakeholders in a specific sector are always updated on reforms.
Participants follow the proceeding of the launch through Video conference at World Bank office in Kigali. Munyeshaka said the Government is also considering preferential rates for productive users. Current electricity tariffs have consumers with large industries pay Rwf83 per kilowatt, those with medium industries Rwf90 per kilowatt, while the small industries pay Rwf per kilowatt.
