Alexis Akwagyiram's curator insight, March 18, 2014 5:09 AM

This is a different story about Rwanda. It's worth remembering the business-friendly reforms that are propelling the country's economy. Rwanda is currently in the news for very different reasons - most recently because of a diplomatic spat with South Africa. That followed the death of a Rwandan dissident in Johannesburg in suspicious circumstances. And the country will be in the news in the coming months as the 20th anniversary of the genocide there is marked.
