New Year’s resolutions

January 6, 2009

The money kind. Those are the news in Kigali today: Rwanda is looking to capitalize on investments in two of its now-famous business sectors–coffee and tourism. The country hopes for $60 million more in coffee revenues, and $20 million more from tourism, which is centered mostly around those oh-I-just-want-to-hug-em gorillas in the Virungas.

Tourism exploded last year, and the local paper says that the country invested heavily in marketing plans for coffee, so we may be about to see that take off. Which means you should get to your local Starbucks now and buy up their Rwandan beans; they could go the way of gasoline.

(No, not gasoline here.)
