Belgium to direct more investments to Rwanda

Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Didier Reynders, and Alexander De Croo of Development Cooperation Tuesday reaffirmed their country’s commitment to maintaining cooperation with Rwanda.

The ministers said this while addressing a joint press conference with the ministry of foreign affairs Louis Mushikiwabo.

On the issue of the frozen aid, the ministers noted that, “We are still providing huge aid to Rwanda like other countries in the region, and our relations are very good and we are trying to enhance them and we will do that in the next days when we discuss at a political level,” he said.

On his part, Minister De Croo said the relations between Rwanda and Belgium are excellent, adding that Rwanda is the third biggest country in their development cooperation after DR Congo and Burundi.

He commended Rwanda for what he described as incredible improvement in fields of economic and social affairs in the previous years.

We really hope this development will continue in the right direction, he said, including on civil liberties and human rights.

Last month Belgium pledged to release 18 million Euro of the 40 million packages.
