Nearly two decades after Rwanda’s  horrific  genocide, the country  has been transformed. High  rises are going up in the capital city of Kigali; a  newly established  stock  exchange  is  attracting  investors;  and the economy is transitioning from subsistence agriculture to information and communication technology. In pursuit of the alchemy that made Rwanda such an unlikely  success story, Patricia Crisafulli and Andrea Redmond interviewed Rwandan government officials, including  current president Paul  Kagame, as well as business leaders, foreign  investors, NGOs, and everyday civilians.

In Rwanda, Inc. they look at  the key factors that allowed this tiny country to beat the odds - including  Rwanda’s  efforts to encourage  private  sector development  and foster entrepreneurship, and how Kagame’s unique  leadership approach led to gains in health, education, and food sustainability. They  also explore  what the future holds for this resilient nation, and the steps it’s taking to develop the next generation of public servants. With so many  eyes on Africa as nations rebuild in the wake of the Arab Spring, this is a timely and fascinating look at what other emerging democracies can learn from Rwanda’s triumph.
