‘Smart Rwanda’ aims at looking at all innovative ways ICT can drive to achieve socio-economic transformation agenda of our country.

The government has started a new initiative that seeks to apply the power of ICT in the development agenda to transform the social and economic development of the country.

The plan, dubbed "Smart Rwanda Days", is a citizen-centred business-friendly, accessible and sustainable information and service delivery chain, which will be realised through public-private partnership.

To realise Smart Rwanda Days, government, in partnership with the World Bank, yesterday hosted an event to help stakeholders develop a shared vision for the initiative.

The two-day forum brought together global experts in ICT and economy from Africa and beyond, as well as Rwandan ICT enthusiasts to identify possible "Smart" solutions to deliver Smart Rwanda.

Jean Philbert Nsengimana, the minister for youth and ICT, said the initiative seeks to leverage the gains made in ICT growth, mainly the available infrastructure, to take the country further.

"Key to the success of Smart Rwanda is sustainability of all our interventions. Our strategy will be to rely on the much needed private sector resources and capabilities."
