“I must say I’m also grateful to be back home to work on the journey of the country’s economic development,” said Akamanzi, who had previously worked at RDB in different capacities, including acting CEO.

Prior to her latest appointment last week, she was the head of Strategy and Policy Unit in the Office of the President.

“The work that the outgoing team has done has built a solid foundation and I want to work to sustain what has been achieved,” she said during the handover ceremony.

She said one of the main things she would focus on during her tenure would be to help add value to locally produced commodities.

Her other priority, she said, will be to promote innovation to help ensure that Rwanda’s journey to achieve its aspirations as a regional services hub is achieved.
