Rwanda has been ranked as Africa’s most efficient government followed by Mauritius and South Africa in the Global Competitive Report 2014-2015.

The country was also ranked the 7th most efficient government globally.

The latest report, released by the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Monday, put the small central African nation ahead of Malaysia, Switzerland and Luxembourg, which are placed 8th, 9th and 10th, respectively.

Other leaders in Africa Mauritius and South Africa were ranked 26th and 32nd globally respectively.

The survey ranked the Qatar government as the most efficient, followed by Singapore and Finland in third place.

“Rwanda’s strong showing in seventh position was secured thanks in large part to the low level of waste in government spending,” says WEF findings.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Anastase Shyaka, chief executive officer Rwanda Governance Board said Rwanda has put in much efforts towards promoting a transparent and accountable governance system.

“We are not surprised by the report because the results speak of what is on the ground. In Rwanda there is meaningful participation and accountability, particularly when it comes to how public resources are allocated,” he said.

The annual survey evaluates the efficiency of 144 of the world’ s governments on measures including wastefulness in government spending, burden of regulation and transparency of policymaking, to produce an overall global ranking.

Rwanda has on several occasions been ranked among the most dynamic performers on social and economic development indicators across the globe.

In East Africa, Kenya comes second after Rwanda as the most efficient, but stands at 51st position globally. Burundi comes last in the East African countries and 121st at global level.
