The African continent is very rich of minerals. This mineral wealth could make a tremendous contribution to the economic development of the continent. Still, the African mining sector serves primarily as a source of raw minerals exported for processing in Europe and Asia. Many countries are struggling to add value to the minerals they extract. In 2011, the Evert Vermeer Stichting visited Rwanda and executed an extensive research on Rwanda's mining sector. Learn more about the relation between mining, development, and European policy on www.fairpolitics.eu. And read our research report about mining in Rwanda.

Although Africa has a great natural resource wealth, many of its inhabitants are still plagued by poverty. Mining provides men aswell as women an opportunity to escape this poverty.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging t...
Rwanda's mining sector stands as one of the main contributor to the country's GDP, contributing 103 million dollars from January to August 2016, averaging $143 million dollars per year for the last 7 years. As the country aims to improve output by 28 per cent and revenue gains to 400 million dollars by 2017/2018, what is the future of the country's mining sector over fluctuating global commodity prices?
A Uganda multi-stakeholder study tour to Rwanda to learn how Rwanda organizes and regulates Artisanal and Small scale Mining (ASM).

Rwanda has said it expects its official foreign exchange reserves, to fall after a dip in the prices of its mineral exports. This month, Rwanda secured an 18-month $204 million standby facility from the IMF to bolster reserves. The IMF said reserves stood at $817 million at the end of March. Rwanda has a policy of keeping its foreign exchange reserves at above three months of import cover. Despite the commodity price shock, Rwanda's economy grew at 6.9 percent in 2015 and is forecast to expand by 6 percent in both 2016 and 2017. The exchange rate has however come under pressure and the current account deficit has widened. Reserves would slide to 3.2 months import cover by the end of 2016 and 2.5 months at end-2017, before rising to 2.9 months by the end of 2018.

Make sure to switch to HD! Subscribe to me here : https://www.youtube.com/c/FashionWizardry Hey gorgeous humans! Today's video is a short vlog from my time in Rwanda. I had so much fun in Kigali, it's insane! From shooting for the Ronkos fashion line to getting stood up during my lunch date - I wouldn't change a thing! Also visited the genocide memorial which was SUPER emotional. I decided not to vlog as there were some very graphic images from the horrible genocide period & it felt disrespectful to put such intimate & emotional aspects of people's lives personally affected by the horrible ordeal on the internet. If you are ever in Kigali, please make it a point to go visit the memorial, it's something you will not regret. The museum also survives on donations so if you're able to dona...

The country's tourism's industry witnessed yet another double digit growth in 2016 over the previous year 2015.

As the head guide at the Kigali Genocide Memorial in Rwanda, Serge Rwigamba leads heads of state and VIPs such as Angelina Jolie through his country’s deeply painful past. The task is also very personal: He lost his father and countless other family members in the 1994 genocide. The role, he says, is therapeutic, a way of understanding his trauma. Like any job though, it comes with its quirks, characters, and challenges as seen in this short directed by Juan Herrero and produced by Tik Root.
