The population is relatively small as compared to many countries but considering the size of the country, it’s the most densely populated country in Africa. Rwanda is the smallest landlocked country in Africa. It has four neighbor countries: DRC to the West, Uganda to the North, Tanzania to the East and Burundi to the South.
Rwanda is largely an agricultural country. Coffee and tea are the leading export products to Europe and the USA. More tuber crops are grown for subsistence purposes supporting the vibrant young population with an average age of 19 years.
Rwanda’s economic growth has been highest among neighboring countries for over years in a row. It has a GDP of $10 Billion (2019 estimate). Considering a very high dependency ratio of over 80%, the unemployment rate stands at 16%.
