Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda | May 8, 2009
Entrepreneurship, not aid, is the best way for poor nations to end poverty and improve development. ++ Aid engenders poverty, instability and reliance. ++ Help is welcome, but rich nations must have "a head for poor countries, not just a heart". ++ Poor nations should respect local wisdom, build a culture of innovation and create investment opportunities. ++ Despite challenges, Rwanda has a clear export strategy based on sustainable competitive advantages. ++ Aid cannot be permanent and we must debate how best and when to end aid.
