“To make growth sustainable, it has to be accompanied by structural transformation. Rwanda is a country that is on a transformative path. At the moment, the Rwandan economy is growing at eight per cent. This has been sustained over a number of years. Rwanda has taken policy measures that translate growth into poverty reduction. If you look at the past three or four years, they have been able to almost cut poverty by half. It puts them on track to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.”
