Rwanda becomes Africa’s top reformer

Not only is Rwanda Africa’s most progressive country in terms of gender equality, but also the regional leader when it comes to the pace of institutional and policy reform, a new report by the World Bank has revealed.

Rwanda greatly improved its business environment over the years, emerging as one of the fastest expanding economies in Africa, which growth projected at 6.3% this year, the fifth fastest in Africa, according to the IMF. Its new ranking as the top reformer has had a lot to do with its reputation for the ease of doing business, a factor which the World Bank ranks Rwanda as third in the region.
