This project will harness the comparative strengths of OECD investment-related co-operation with non-OECD countries, notably:
a partnership approach to policy capacity building based on sharing of experience and peer learning
multilaterally-backed investment policy tools that can be adapted and developed by African countries for their specific needs
a forum for policy co-operation and dialogue based on comprehensive, coherent and process oriented policy assessments
a facilitating role for mobilising other fields of OECD expertise
This project also aims to support Rwanda’s ongoing efforts to implement its National Programme of Action (NPA) under the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). One of the NEPAD-OECD Initiative’s priorities is to support the strengthening of the business climate-related components of the APRM, in particular the investment dimensions of NPAs.
Rwanda’s specificities and competitive advantages will be identified while preparing recommendations which aim to make Rwanda's environment more competitive for attracting investment in the global context.
