Rwanda and the Kingdom of the Netherlands signed an agreement on 27 October, where the latter com-mitted Euro 20 million (about Rwf17 billion) toward efforts to boost the Judiciary. The grant will support Justice, Reconciliation, Law and Order Sector (JLOS) and help strengthen the rule of law, promote good governance and a culture of peace, according to Finance and Economic Planning minister Claver Gatete.
“Justice sector strategies are a direct translation of the main second Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS2). Justice-related priorities and the purpose of the Sector is to strengthen the rule of law, while promoting accountable governance and a culture of peace,” Ambassador Gatete said during the signing ceremony in Kigali. “This will greatly contribute to socio-economic development and enhance poverty reduction as prescribed in EDPRS2 blueprint.”
