Indashyikirwa “Business Champions at District level” Following a successful formulation and operationalization of Golden Circle, the same idea was replicated across the country at district level to ensure an evenly distributed private sector participation in Rwanda’s economic development.
The brand name for the districts outreach program is “Indashyikirwa” a connotation in Kinyarwanda for “Champions”. Districts have developed ambitious development Local Economic Development Plans that are aligned with Rwanda’s national Economic Development Programs.
They, too look up to private sector in their respective localities to participate in those ambitious development plans. In such cases, they need a favorable private public dialogue (PPD) platform through which they can elaborate their respective investment agendas. The Indashyikirwa are the voice of the Private Sector for Local Economic Development issues.
