About Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)
Under its mid- to long-term development plan “Rwanda Vision 2020,” the government of Rwanda is now actively promoting economic development with its objective of lifting the per capita GDP from the US $220 in 2000 to the US $900 by 2020. The country's economic structure, however, remains vulnerable: as a landlocked country relying on agriculture as its primary industry, Rwanda has a chronic trade deficit. Upgrading of physical infrastructure and enhancement of capacity and human skills are keys to expanding the role of private sector. JICA's support to Rwanda is primarily focused on: 1) economic infrastructure, 2) promotion of value added agriculture, 3) water and sanitation, and 4) human resource development.
