KIGALI - Rwanda investment conference which is slated to open next week in Kigali, will enhance business opportunities for the Rwandan business community since it will focus on forging gainful partnerships and breaking into new markets.
This was revealed yesterday by Claire Akamanzi, the Chief Operatimg Officer (COO) of Rwanda Development Board (RDB) while addressing members of the press at the institution’s premises.
“The forum will give us an opportunity to lobby new business partnership with the business community outside Rwanda,” she said.
Akamanzi added that the forum aims at building on Rwanda’s expanding network of relationships created by joining the Commonwealth.
“We expect to sell investment opportunities to business investors who have not invested in Rwanda and increase on the investment potential,” she noted.
“The forum will promote inward investments and create new business partnerships, anchored in the English speaking world and using key Commonwealth points to break into global markets in Europe, Asia and America”.
The event to be held under the theme; ‘Accessing an East African Market of 150 Million and Accelerating Growth and Development’, is being organized by the government through RDB, in partnership with the Commonwealth Business Council.
Deliberations will focus on investment opportunities in ICT, Tourism, Mining, Agriculture, Manufacturing, Agro-processing, Construction and Real Estate.
