The Private Sector Federation - Rwanda (PSF) is a professional organization, dedicated to promote and represent the interests of the Rwandan business community. It is an umbrella organization that groups 9 professional chambers. It was established in December 1999, replacing the former Rwanda Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Private Sector Federation (PSF) has registered major successes since its creation in 1999. Beyond a strong brand and membership base, PSF pioneered Business Development Services (BDS), registered wins in advocacy and played a strong national and regional role.
Yet, the business sector still needs to mature into Rwanda economic engine. While Vision 2020 and EDPRS call for a private sector led economy, the business sector, We realize that a strong Private Sector Federation must also achieve financial self-reliance.
Our members and our leaders have expressed willingness to support the Federation based on performance. To move towards self-reliance, we now have a clear membership fee structure.
Leadership will be critical for success.The key to success is ownership and accountability from all PSF stakeholders over the plan by all levels of PSF, i.e. the Secretariat, Province, Chambers and Associations. Both Rwanda’s trajectory and PSF’s history illustrate the power of determined leadership to deliver results.
