President Paul Kagame‘s moves to turn Rwanda into ‘the Singapore of Africa’, a financial and information technology hub, have captured the city-state’s attention. Businesswoman Christina Tan led a delegation of the Singapore Business Forum’s Africa Business Group (AfBG) to Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda in December 2010. The group comprised 17 members, including representatives of Singapore businesses and officials from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Industry.
