The Services Shift to Rwanda

The title of this post links to the blog that just started by Robert E. Kennedy, a well-known scholar, speaker, and educator. His research focuses on the opportunities and challenges facing businesses in developing countries. He is traveling to Rwanda for a capacity building program at the School of Finance and Banking (SFB) in Kigali.

Bob asks himself and us the question: "what can the country export to the rest of the world in exchange for the imports it needs? How exactly does services offshoring work? How do you "get in the game"? Who makes a good partner? And what are the policy implications?

While sitting at the airport he encourages himself "Rwanda is an interesting test case for the Services Shift". I'm now following Bob, the subject he is doing research on seems very interesting.
