Rwandan students studying in India last week treated guests to a thrilling performance of Rwandan dances during the fourth edition of World Tourism Day held at the Indian Merchants’ Chamber (IMC), Mumbai, India.
The event, attended by Ernest Rwamucyo, Rwanda’s High Commissioner to India, also provided a platform to highlight Rwanda’s development progress.
The celebrations began with the Choir from the Happy Home and School for the Blind, singing in different languages.
The occasion, hosted by Shailesh Vaidya, the president of IMC, attracted trade commissioners, consuls general, travel and tourism professionals, as well as print and electronic media.
According to Clarence Fernandes, the representative for Rwanda Development Board in India, Rwamucyo shared Rwanda’s growth story and extended an invitation to participants come to Rwanda and experience the country’s beauty.
“Visit Rwanda not just from a tourism perspective, but also to look at the vast opportunities that exist in developing trade and making investments in the country, which would yield good returns,” the envoy told guests.
The event also saw lucky winners walk away with free air return tickets to Rwanda and Turkey, courtsey of Turkish Airlines.
