Rwanda is my model coun­try for Africa [‘Clare Aka­manzi: We have made it easy to do busi­ness’, TAR107 Apr-june 2019]. One of the is­sues African coun­tries have is strin­gent visa poli­cies that hamper eco­nomic growth. In my ex­pe­ri­ence, one takes less than three min­utes to go through Rwanda’s im­mi­gra­tion ser­vices. Rwanda is ranked 29 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Busi­ness in­dex, and it is felt when you are on the field. As a busi­ness per­son, all you need to know about in­vest­ing, reg­is­ter­ing your busi­ness and know­ing the right in­sti­tu­tions for a spe­cific re­quest can be ob­tained on­line. This is a coun­try where gov­ern­ment doesn’t look like gov­ern­ment – it op­er­ates with the men­tal­ity of pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions.
