The newspaper’s country manager, Simon Kayitana commended the exhibition saying that it has provided a platform to the newspaper.
“The New Times being one of the Rwandan products, it was absolutely an opportunity for us to show the world the services we offer,” Kayitana said.
“Since this paper is mainly known in Rwanda, we’re so much enthusiastic on informing the businesspeople in Uganda and the world, the investment opportunities that Rwanda can offer.
The exhibition also attracted exhibitors from Burundi, France, Italy, Canada, Belgium, Egypt and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
