The transport system in Rwanda centres primarily around the road network, with paved roads between the capital, Kigali and most other major cities and towns in the country. Rwanda is also linked by road with other countries in East Africa, via which the majority of the country's imports and exports are made. The country has an international airport at Kigali, serving one domestic and several international destinations, and also has limited transport between the port cities on Lake Kivu. A large amount of investment in the transport infrastructure has been made by the government since the 1994 genocide, with aid from the European Union, China, Japan and others.

Railways

There are currently no railways in Rwanda.[1] In 2006, China promised to fund a study to build a rail link from Bujumbura in Burundi via Kigali in Rwanda to Tanzania, which would be 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) gauge.[citation needed] Alternately, the Northern Corridor Transit Coordination Authority has proposed railway connection from Rwanda and Burundi via Congo to connect to the southern Africa 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) (Cape gauge) railway network.[citation needed]
