Rwanda Cross-Border Agricultural Trade Analysis

Date Published: 
February 1, 2013

This study assesses trade between Rwanda and its four cross-border neighboring countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania, and Uganda, and focuses on staple crops (maize, wheat, beans, Irish potatoes, cassava and rice), livestock (cattle, milk, eggs), and agricultural inputs (fertilizer seed). The analysis examines cross-border trade, where appropriate, through four lenses; price, processing potential, seasonality, and trade demographics, to uncover unfilled demand in cross-border markets and outline trade opportunities for actors along agricultural value chains in Rwanda.
