Guangzhou is known as the “world’s factory” because it is a hub for manufacturing and Africans come to Guangzhou for short periods to buy goods to ship back to Africa.

RwandAir also has a direct flight from Kigali to London and is embarking on a direct route to New York as well.

RwandAir has direct route to the UK too

Observers say President Paul Kigali is transforming the image and reputation of Africa, from a nation of failed governance to one of excellence through his many achievements and development progress.

According to the “Rwanda Overview Report” – The World Bank Group, the international organization says Rwanda has achieved impressive development gains since the 1994 genocide and civil war. 

With the support of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, Rwanda has been able to make important economic and structural reforms and sustain its economic growth rates over the years.  For details visit:
