Before presenting her credentials, Mukangira had met other government officials in the Asian country to discuss bilateral cooperation between Rwanda and Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is one of the biggest markets in South Asia, known for its developed garments industry and remittances from its citizens working abroad. The two components contribute immensely to its economic growth. Mukangira is representing Rwanda in five countries which are; India, where she is resident, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Nepal. Bangladesh was the last of the five countries where she presented her letters of credence.
