From The Investment Safari

Take the Investment Safari: "Rwanda is a country that has been on my mind a great deal, these days.... As a matter of fact, my wife and I are planning a trip to Kenya this year and while there, we hope to make it into Kigali (Rwanda's capital). There are just so many fascinating things about Rwanda, these are a few of the things that intrigue me:

* They will soon be joining the East African Community, which is the regional intergovernmental orginazation currently comprised of Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.

* They have taken a proactive approach to investment promotion-coffee (often through fair trade ventures) and IT have been two of their major focal points.

* They have gotten rid of capital punishment.

* Rwanda's tourism sector is beginning to rebound nicely.

* The country's 'turnaround' from massive civil strife and turmoil to beacon of hope."

Please do! On my list of public service entrepreneurs to emulate, Donald Kaberuka formerly Rwanadan Finance Minister and now head of the African Development Bank, is in the top 3. You will be blown away by the chutzpah of the Rwandans in re-building their country from ashes.

He has already made a mark at the ADB in terms of innovation, pragmatism and effectiveness. He was the perfect choice to head ADB, and I'm glad his peers on the continent have exploited his talents.
