Statistics are an important pillar on which the National Bank of Rwanda (BNR) bases to effectively carry out its mission of preserving the value of money through maintaining the inflation at the acceptable levels.
Therefore, the National Bank of Rwanda aims at high quality statistics, regularly improving their accuracy and scope. On the storage and dissemination sides, BNR is developing an integrated database system and website.
The statistics produced at the National Bank of Rwanda include among others the balance of payment statistics and monetary statistics.
BNR also works with National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda to produce economic statistics which include the producer price index (PPI), the consumer price index (CPI), the index of industrial production (IIP), the turnovers of companies and primary sector statistics.
