As Rwanda marks the 25th anniversary of its 1994 genocide, YouTube personality Sam Denby examines how far the nation has come. Rwanda has set its sights on becoming the “Singapore of Africa,” a lofty goal for a landlocked country. Indeed, Rwanda seems to have achieved astronomical growth – “seems” being the operative word. Denby examines the claims, provides historical context and draws useful political parallels to provide much-needed insight into the country’s economy. Multinational businesses expanding into Africa will appreciate Denby’s case study.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Rwanda fares in economic and development indices,
- What factors drove Singapore’s success,
- How Rwanda is trying to emulate Singapore’s development curve.
