Business leaders taking part in Citi FM’s Hello Kigali business tour have already been warmed into the serene and apparent orderliness in the city of Kigali. For the first day of their tour, the delegation will today be exposed to Rwanda’s strategy in ensuring tax compliance, as well as efficiency and reliability in the provision of government services

The participants who arrived in Kigali on Tuesday afternoon, will meet with authorities of three key organizations in Rwanda, the Rwandan Revenue Authority, IREMBO (eGovernment Portal), and the Kigali Free Zone in a bid to have first hand information and exposure on the tactics used by them to make their entities successful

The Rwandan Revenue Authority has been touted as one of the few authorities in Africa using technology to ensure tax compliance and efficiency, while its e-Government portal has successfully centralized five key government services and eradicated the major bureaucratic challenges.
