African countries are seldom countries that are easy to do business in. But in recent years, these East African countries have put in the effort and made reforms to make a conducive market for foreign investment. That’s why Mauritius and Rwanda are the only countries in the top 50 of the World Bank Ease of Doing Business Ranking.

However, this year Rwanda has dropped in the World Bank Ease of Doing Business 2020 ranking. It slipped from position 29 to 38. Rwanda scored 76.5 after scoring  77.88 last year. However, Mauritius occupies the 13th position in the World Bank Ease of Doing Business Ranking.

Rwanda has dropped in its ranking for the first time in 3 years. But that isn’t stopping the country from making reforms. Other African Countries are also following the lead of Mauritius and Rwanda. Kenya improved in its position this year and jumped to rank 56 from 62. While Uganda rose to position 116 from 127, Tanzania is at 141. And Burundi was at 166 this year.

To make the country attractive to foreign investors, Rwanda has made many reforms in the past years. It has exempted small and medium companies from the trading license tax. It has also let businesses obtain liability insurance on buildings. And many official translators have also come in business, who are able to provide Swahili translation of the foreign documents with much ease, Swahili being one of the official languages of the region.

The country has improved the reliability of the power supply by upgrading its power grid infrastructure. It has also changed the regulations for workers, by pertaining to weekly rest and being flexible about the working hours. They have also decided on the severance payments and reemployment priority rules after redundancy dismissals.

All these steps have made Rwanda a better place for foreign investors. Though the country isn’t in the top position, like New Zealand, Singapore, and China, it is still making its way.
