The German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Dr. Gerd Mueller, is expected in Kigali today for a two-day visit.

The focus of the visit which ends on Friday will be on Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and Good Governance/Decentralisation.

 

Together with the Minister for Education Dr. Papias Malimba Musafiri, Mueller is expected to visit the Integrated Polytechnic Regional Centre (IPRC) in Kigali, according to a statement.
