The governments of Rwanda and Libya on Tuesday held talks in Kigali with the aim of reviving their bilateral cooperation and prepare the forthcoming joint meeting slated for May.
Top on the agenda of the meeting held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was the revival of the Joint Permanent Commission (JPC).
The meeting that was attended by senior Rwandan officials and eight government and business executives from Libya is a follow up of a previous meeting between the Prime Ministers of the two countries late last year.
“At the time, the two met, they discussed and recommended the revival of the previous bilateral cooperation programme, building on the one that existed in the old arrangement,” Joseph Kabakeza, the Director General of Bilateral and Multilateral Cooperation in the ministry told The New Times.
“In 2007 there was a revival in the areas of trade and investment”.
Prominent among Libya’s investment in Rwanda is LAP Green’s 80 percent stake in Rwandatel.
