About Buildexpo Rwanda 2019


Buildexpo Africa is the only show with the widest range of the latest technology in construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. After 21 successful editions of Buildexpo in Kenya and Tanzania, East Africa’s largest building and construction fair now ventures into the Rwandan market. The first edition of Buildexpo in Rwanda will provide an international business platform by enabling global investment opportunities.

Rwanda has one of the fastest growing economies in East Africa. The country entered a period of high economic growth in 2006, and the following year managed to register 8% economic growth, a record it has sustained since, turning it into one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa. Rwanda’s ongoing economic recovery is construction-led and is set to continue. The Government of Rwanda has attached a very high importance to promoting construction projects and has increased government investment in infrastructure expansion and modernization. Almost a tenth of Rwanda’s annual budget is committed to transport and other infrastructure.

Construction and real estate sectors are key sectors and potential drivers of future economic growth in Rwanda, mainly due to the high demand for residential and commercial buildings for the business community.

Buildexpo will bring you exhibitors from over 28 countries that are the finest in infrastructure development, with over hundreds of products, equipment and machinery on display.
