An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Rwanda is a landlocked nation in central Africa that shares borders with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Uganda and Tanzania. It has a very young population and rapidly growing economy and the primary source of foreign exchange is from agriculture and tourism. Rwanda has made an emphasis to leverage their unique biodiversity and beautiful landscape to attract foreign visitors. Rwanda is also a major producer of highly sought after blends of coffee and other agricultural products. Being a landlocked country has also meant that Rwanda has had to maintain relatively stable and positive relations with their neighbouring countries in order to maintain access to foreign markets.
