Share it

President Kagame has asked Israel Investors to invest in Rwanda, saying the country offers a perfect investment environment.

“Rwanda is open for business and we look forward to welcoming private sector delegations from Israel even more frequently,” he said.

President Kagame and First Lady Mrs. Jeannette Kagame arrived in Israel yesterday on a 2-day state visit.

This morning, Israel President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu received President Kagame at the President’s residence in Jerusalem.

Both leaders reaffirmed the two countries’ relations especially in the business sector, while President Kagame said Rwanda is ready to share with Israel common interests pertaining citizens.

“We are looking forward to reinforcing our collaboration with Israel on common challenges and issues of mutual interest.”

March this year, President Kagame became the first African leader to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference in Washington DC. – a high profile platform that brings together Jewish Community around the world.

The President paid tribute to Israel’s commitment to renew its relations with Africa. In July last year, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Rwanda as part of his 4-day official visit to Africa.

Israel’s partnership with Rwanda mainly focus on Technology and Agriculture, among others. Hundreds of Rwandan students are pursuing studies in different disciplines in Israel – the latest being 121 students who left for Israel in August last year.

In 2015, seven Rwandan information and telecommunication technology firms entered signed cooperation deals with select Israeli ICT firms.

Last month, a delegation of 20 chief executives officers (CEOs), managing directors and associates of different companies dealing in technology, health, education and energy met President Kagame in the capital Kigali and announced they finalizing plans to open their subsidiaries in Rwanda.
