The exchange is very frequent and fruitful, despite the distance between Rwanda and South Korea.
A team of experts, led by Dr. Okju Jeong, Country Manager, Rwanda/East African Community, visited MININFRA last week, during a stakeholder meeting with participants from REMA, FONERWA, RNRA, MINECOFIN, Consultants and secondary cities representatives. The steps to come in the collaboration were discussed. The collaboration focuses on the development of a green growth strategy and the support to the development of secondary cities and Kigali for a country-wide distribution of socio-economic opportunities, applying principles of green growth. The six secondary cities, which have been identified by the Government over the course of the last 8 months in a detailed and participatory assessment process and in conjunction with developing the Urbanization and Rural Settlement Sector Strategy include Huye, Nyagatare, Rusizi, Musanze, Rubavu and Muhanga.
GGGI is dedicated to pioneering and diffusing the new paradigm for economic growth and a green growth addressed by the newly launched EDPRS2-document, which integrates the key aspects of economic performance and poverty reduction through job creation and social inclusion.
