Finance and security, the main vehicles of Kagame's diplomacy
For several years President Paul Kagame has been trying to strengthen Rwanda's position on the continental and international scene via two of the country's key sectors: finance and the army. The teams at Kigali International Financial Center (KIFC) have been travelling abroad more regularly, with a view to making the city Africa's financial hub. Meanwhile, the armed forces' emissaries are exporting Rwanda's military know-how. President Kagame has also being making the most of his connections beyond the continent, particularly those in Qatar, to position himself at the heart of the great game of nations.
