The World Bank Group is launching its 18th edition of the Rwanda Economic Update (REU). Published twice a year, the REU analyzes recent economic developments and prospects, as well as Rwanda’s policy priorities. The REU is intended for a wide audience of policymakers, business leaders, other market participants, analysts of Rwanda’s economy, and civil society. It draws on data reported by the Government of Rwanda and additional information collected by the World Bank Group in its regular economic monitoring and policy dialogue. The update is a collective endeavor and involves staff from several parts of the World Bank. Each issue has a special feature spotlighting a particular topic. The current edition of the REU, Boosting Regional Integration in the Post-COVID Era, focuses on regional integration and cross-border trade.
