Project Description

According to MIGA website, this summary covers an application by Mota Engil Engenharia e Construcao Africa, S.A, African Infrastructure Investments Managers, Pembani Remgro Infrastructure Managers, Harith General Partners Limited and Royal Bafokeng Holdings (Pty) Limited for MIGA guarantees covering their proposed equity investments into Bugesera Airport Company in Rwanda. 

The project entails the development, construction, financing, ownership and operation of the greenfield New Bugesera International Airport (NBIA) under a 25-years Concession Agreement. The Project site is approximately 27 kilometers from the City of Kigali, in Bugesera District which is in the South-Eastern region of Rwanda.

The NBIA is seen in the airport’s enabling role for the country’s development strategy which aims to leverage Rwanda’s positive investment environment, high doing-business scores, and perceived political stability in order to turn Rwanda into a regional hub for conferences, transport and tourism. NBIA will thereby promote stronger integration with regional economies.
