Post-genocide Rwanda has had notable achievements in economic reconstruction. Nevertheless, the country still faces significant economic challenges. Rwanda today is kept economically afloat by foreign aid. President Kagame takes pride and gives priority to investments in conspicuous projects, mostly in Kigali, while rural areas remain mired in poverty. Disparities between the rich and poor are growing. Rwanda?s economic life is dominated by the state and the ruling party. Private enterprises and entrepreneurship are stifled by unequal access to business opportunities, financing and credit.
