Immaculee Uwanyiligira, the Rwandan envoy to the Netherlands, last week, presented her Letters of Credence to Danilo Turk, President of the Republic of Slovenia.
A communiqué from her office notes that from January 18-24, she visited Slovenia, one of the five other countries in the diplomatic representation jurisdiction of the Rwandan Embassy in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The other four are Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Bulgaria.
While in Slovenia, Uwanyiligira had several engagements with officials from different organizations including the Executive Director of the Peace Institute, the State Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, the Rector of the University of Ljubljana, the Archbishop of the Diocese of Ljubljana, and the Director General International Center for the Promotion of Enterprises.
The Ambassador also visited the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, where she met representatives of 13 businesses interested in doing business in Rwanda, whose operations present tremendous potential for partnerships with Rwandan companies as well as investment opportunities for Rwanda.
Established 150 years ago, the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is Slovenia’s most influential business association representing 15,000-strong membership of companies which contributes up to 70 percent of the country’s GDP.
Slovenia, which gained independence in 1991 after the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, has carved out a reputation as one of the most prosperous countries in Eastern Europe.
