Rwanda is planning to open new diplomatic missions in the West African countries of Senegal and Nigeria.
According to officials, government has interest in cultivating relations with countries all over the world, through establishing more embassies.
What does the country stand to gain by cultivating more diplomatic relations? Rwanda is developing at a fast pace.
The country’s success has attracted visitors from all corners of the world. Sixteen years after the Genocide against the Tutsi, the number of tourists has multiplied many times over.
The number of investors registered, during this period, is equally impressive, and this can be attributed to the clean investment climate created by the post-genocide government.
The government is not only cultivating diplomatic ties with west African countries, it has also announced that Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, will soon be home to a new Rwandan embassy, a move that will yield economic gains.
Rwanda has maintained and enjoyed diplomatic relations with most countries in the region. With a population of about 11 million, a dynamically growing economy and an increasing influence in the region opening more embassies is the way to go.
Citizens will freely integrate with elites from other parts of the world, something so important for the further progress of the country.
