April 22, 2022
KIGALI (RWANDA), 22 APRIL 2022 — The Chandler Institute of Governance (CIG) has concluded its inaugural working visit to Rwanda from 19 to 22 April 2022, led by Executive Director Wu Wei Neng.

The CIG team visited various government ministries and agencies, and governance experts in the capital of Kigali, to learn more about the systems, institutions and key priorities of the Government of Rwanda, share updates on CIG’s partnership models and the Chandler Good Government Index, and explore collaboration with government and research organisations in Rwanda.

During the visit, CIG met with leaders, officials and experts from the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, the Ministry of Public Service and Labour, Rwanda Cooperation, Rwanda Governance Board, Rwanda Management Institute, and the Institute of Policy Analysis and Research.

Improving Mutual Understanding and Identifying Areas of Collaboration

One of CIG’s key areas of work is the learning and sharing of good practices and experiences from governments around the world. CIG and the Government of Rwanda discussed Rwanda’s distinctive Home Grown Solutions, and the Government’s key policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

CIG also learnt how the Government of Rwanda tracks and measures its performance and outcomes through innovative tools such as the Rwanda Governance Scorecard and the Citizen Report Card. Both sides discussed the importance of training and skills development in public sector capabilities such as human resource policies, performance management, planning and leadership development.
