This year’s edition of Rwanda Day, to be held tomorrow October 3 in the Netherlands will bring together more than 4,000 Rwandans and friends of Rwanda, according to organisers.
The event will see Rwandans living in the Netherlands and around the world reaffirm their core national value of Agaciro, celebrate the country’s progress and discuss ways of being part of Rwanda’s social-economic transformation.
An official in the Rwandan embassy in The Hague told The New Times that through an audio-visual exhibition showcasing Rwanda’s journey, participants will also have the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the steps that continue to shape the country.
“There will be opportunities to meet, interact and exchange views on the country and how one can contribute to the vision of a modern, unified and prosperous nation,” said Robert Kayinamura, an official at the Rwandan embassy in The Hague.
The guest of honor, President Paul Kagame, is expected to deliver a keynote address followed by an interactive discussion.
The gathering serves as a time to reconnect with Rwanda’s history, learn about the Rwanda of today and be an integral part of defining Rwanda’s future.
The Embassy of Rwanda in The Hague and the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in cooperation with the Netherlands Africa Business Council have organised the Rwanda Business Matchmaking Event today October 2.
“CEO’s and other representatives of 300 Rwandan companies have expressed their special interest in meeting the Dutch private sector and will be present to meet them on October 2. The event is to take place at the KIT in Amsterdam, which was founded in 1910 as the ‘Colonial Institute’ to study the tropics and to promote trade and industry,” Kayinamura added.
