    What is wrong with an Agriculture based economy? Rwanda should work to maintain & improve its agriculture and then work to add knowledge-based services to the economy NOT “move away” from Agriculture. Technology should be a “helper” not an “eliminator” factor. Goodness knows all Africa should not play with their food supply at this time.
