Rwanda : More information dissemination needed – KRBA

Share it


The Kenya-Rwanda Business Association has been urged to provide more news and information to local traders about business opportunities, since it has become apparent that there are numerous investment opportunities in the country, but investors are largely unaware of this.

This among other items was discussed during a one-day meet here in Kigali of the inter-country association, which aims to bolster trade and business between Kenya and Rwanda.

Also discussed at the meeting included ways through which the members can improve and expand their existing business ventures, the hindrances encountered in everyday business and ways to overcome them.

The main talking-point of the meeting however was the lack of credible sources of business and investment opportunities, which the association members vowed to address – declaring their intentions by agreeing to meet every three months hence-forth to share information and ideas on ways to further enhance trade and investment between the two countries and the region at large.

Edgar Ogao, the country representative of the KRBA in Rwanda, on his part underscored the need to see further than the borders of Kenya and Rwanda, saying traders need to find ways to send their products in other countries in the region, namely Uganda and Burundi, since the integration of the region under the East African Community makes this possible.

Formed in 2006, the Kenya Rwanda Business Association now boasts of 200 members.
