Agriculture makes it

"KIGALI, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Rwanda's economy should grow by 7-8 percent this year, after expanding by 11.2 percent in 2008, the fastest pace in five years, the country's central bank governor said on Wednesday.

Francois Kanimba, governor of the National Bank of Rwanda, said the economy had been bolstered by a booming agricultural sector, which constitutes around 38 percent of the economy, and that public investment would help maintain growth momentum." (Thanks Yaz)
