Rwanda, the ‘land of a thousand hills’, will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), including the postponed Commonwealth Business Forum (CBF) in June 2021.
Rwanda’s attractive investment climate: decade-long 8% GDP growth rate and business-friendly environment (Rwanda is second on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index in Africa) – contributes to the country’s growing reputation as an international hub for intra-African trade and investment.
Join CWEIC for a webinar, in partnership with the Government of Rwanda, to learn how Rwanda emerged as a model of excellence in its pandemic response, and to understand how the Commonwealth’s newest member is contributing to Africa’s emergence as a global powerhouse in the post-covid-19 global economic reset.
This webinar will inform CBF 2021, due to be held in Kigali next year, with discussions exploring both Rwanda’s pathway to economic recovery and the unique investment opportunities across agricultural, tourism, infrastructure, ICT, energy, construction, and mining sectors, all of which contribute to the ‘Made in Rwanda’ brand.
Rwanda also ranks in the top 5 countries globally for gender equality and CWEIC is delighted to welcome three of Rwanda’s most senior female leaders to this webinar.
The Rwanda High Commissioner for the UK, HE Yamina Karitanyi will open the webinar, and The Hon Soraya Hakuziyaremye, Minister of Trade, and the Hon Clare Akamanzi CEO of Rwanda Development Board will deliver keynote addresses.
Members interested in learning more about Rwanda’s vision for CBF 2021 and the many exciting investment opportunities across Rwanda are invited to join the webinar on Thursday 9th July from 0920 – 1030 BST.
