Rwanda’s exports from agricultural products will rise substantially next year, an indicator that efforts by government to increase exports, especially through value added agricultural products are paying off. This is according to the National Agriculture Export Board, NAEB.

NAEB, a government controlled institution which was formed after merging Ocir-café, Ocir-Thé and Rwanda Horticultural Development Authority (RHODA), says that agriculture exports will increase in value and volume from 2012 up to 2017.

Kanyankore Alex is the Managing Director of NAEB.

“With our current interventions in land consolidation, garden improvement and helping farmers to increase production we are confident that our exports will increase”.

He revealed that tea revenues are projected to rise to 69million US dollars in 2012 from 61million US dollars while coffee earnings will increase from 73million US dollars to 99million US dollars.

By 2017, revenues from coffee are expected to hit 257million US dollars and 147million US dollars for tea.

NAEB plans to set up new coffee processing plants next year in Karongi, Gatare, Rutsiro, Mushubi, Muganza and Kivu.
