Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has put focus on sports as an avenue to help recover from the effects of Covid-19 and diversify tourism offerings in the country, the board’s CEO, Clare Akamanzi has said.
She made the observations on Tuesday, May 18, during the virtual 2021/2022 budget hearing with the Chamber of Deputies’ National Budget and Patrimony.
RDB’s budget was cut from Rwf39.7 billion in the revised 2020/2021 budget to Rwf30 billion allocated for 2021/2022 as a result of the financial constraints caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Akamanzi said that with this situation, RDB will generally not undertake new projects, rather prioritise those that are already started which need to be completed in order to generate profit.
