This is in reference to your article in your Tuesday,December 28th edition titled “Rwanda plans influential business reforms in 2011”, your business journalist, Berna Namata, aptly explained what measures will be taken by the Rwanda development Board, and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, to introduce business reforms, which will ensure that Rwanda continues to be a winner in the New Year.
