KIGALI - A senior Czech government official is in the country to strengthen his country’s bilateral relations with Rwanda.
Tomáš Dub, the Czech deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, arrived in the country Wednesday for a three-day tour.
He visited various ministries and key government departments like the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and explored various economic sectors including infrastructure, energy, agriculture, defense, and finance.
Yesterday, the Czech minister visited the Defence Ministry and held talks with the minister, Gen. James Kabarebe, and other officials.
“In the recent months, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding on defence cooperation” Dub said after the meeting.
“I would like my visit to simply focus on continuing our cooperation”.
Defence and military Spokesperson, Lt. Col. Jill Rutaremara, told reporters that Dub’s visit at the ministry aimed at looking into how the Rwanda-Czech defence pact can be implemented.
He added that Rwanda could learn a lot from the Czechs, particularly its air force.“They have invited the ministers of defence and foreign affairs.”
Rwanda’s construction, industry, and other nascent investment sectors would attract Czech business people, if all goes according to plan.
