MTI Consulting, led by their CEO Hilmy Cader, are in Kigali this week to launch their East African Operations, whilst working on nationally strategic consulting projects for Rwanda.
MTI had recently completed the Strategic Plan for Rwanda Cooperation – the Rwanda state-owned Enterprise charged with the responsibility of sharing the Country’s Home-Grown Initiatives and good practices that have enabled Rwanda’s remarkable socio-economic transformation.
“Rwanda, considered to be the ‘Tech Hub’ of Africa and tipped to be the ‘Singapore’ of Africa, is the 49th country in which MTI has carried out an assignment, since our inception in 1997. Africa is undoubtedly the growth continent of the 21st century. Over the last 3 years we have been focusing on regional opportunities across East Africa – given the access to these markets from Asia and the Gulf. Given Kigali’s strategic location we plan to access the key markets of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia from Kigali” said Hilmy Cader, CEO of MTI Consulting
Coming out of a devastating genocide in 1994, Rwanda’s socio-economic transformation is considered a ‘case study’ for the developing world. In 2019, Rwanda was the world’s 3rd fastest growing economy, ranked 38th (and 2nd in Africa) for Ease of Doing Business and 1st for Government Transparency in Africa. Interestingly, Rwanda has the highest female participation (61%) in Parliament in the world and it ranked 9th in the Global Gender Gap index 2020 (1st in Africa).
MTI is an internationally-networked boutique management consultancy – having carried out 670 projects across 49 countries – in the last 24 years. MTI’s practices cover Strategy, Operations, Corporate Finance and Digital & Analytics.
