Rwanda delegation off to TurkeyA delegation of Twenty nine Rwandan businessmen led by Minister of Trade and Industry, François Kanimba will attend the Rwanda-Turkey Business Forum and Exhibition scheduled to be held in Istanbul, Turkey starting from 18th to 23nd May, 2013.

The delegation set off from Kigali on Saturday May 18, and will be guided by the Rwanda Active Businessmen Association- a nongovernmental organization that works to promote business between Turkish and Rwandan communities.

The Rwandan team will also be comprised of representatives from Rwanda Development Board (RDB), National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB), Private Sector Federation (PSF), and members of the business community and cooperative representatives.

The Rwandan delegation is also expected on the agenda, to learn from and find ways of doing business with their Turkish counterparts- who have developed especially in the construction and textile business, agriculture, and livestock and also hold the center of trade in Europe, which is spurred by the growing aviation business.

Rwanda-Turkey Business Forum will be the first of its kind and it comes as part of the growing business relationship between the two countries after President Paul Kagame visited the Turkish people and was introduced to some of the world’s renowned investment organizations like Tuskon, at a world economic summit that was held in Turkey in 2012.

Kagame’s visit to Turkey has sparked-off profound business collaboration between the two countries- which also share some common aspects in culture. Various Turkish investors, including the world class airline-Turkish Airlines, have invested in Rwanda. Other Turkish organizations and operations in Rwanda today, include education, hides and skins business among others.
