How do we achieve the EDPRS II? Mr. Asiimwe took his precious time to shed some light on everything that we need to know to understand where we are heading, but I think that we also have to be critical thinkers. I call upon the grassroots leaders to be flexible when it comes to creating a business-friendly environment for Rwandans.
If you look closely, you’ll find out that some of us are too nice to foreign investors and quite nasty to Rwandan businesses. This is instead the time to create and reinforce new industries such as the arts/entertainment, conference tourism, medical tourism etc. Looking forward to 2020!

Thank you so much Arthur for this educative and comprehensive article. I now have a basic, but clear picture, of what EDPRS II is and the imminent economic independence that’s towering above our horizons.
But, on the other hand, there are many among us who don’t have a clue about EDPRS II and what’s required of them to catch the train. What I’m asking you to do is to keep on enlightening us with future episodes about this great exodus.
Peace, Kigali Rwanda
As an outsider looking in, I still have no idea of what EDPRS2 is all about, nor do I understand the Coca-Cola employee comparison. I know several Coca-Cola employees, and in my humble opinion it would take 10 of their employees to match the productivity of one hardworking Rwandan hoorah!
Please do not take offense to my not understanding of EDPRS2. It is in no way a reflection on your most excellent writing. Rather simply a lack of subject knowledge and background on my part.
I love the zeal, energy, and tone in which you write. In my humble opinion for Rwanda to continue to achieve the ambitious goals it has set, it will take talented communicators like you to get the message out.
Keep up the good work, and may God continue to bless Rwanda!
