Rwanda, being an agricultural country and at initial stages of Industrialization, can take advantage of Pakistan’s great potential in agriculture machinery, textile products, pharmaceutical, food items, especially rice and sports products etc. We have been providing assistance in capacity building i.e. training of diplomats etc. to African countries, including Rwanda. The Government of Pakistan can provide assistance in capacity building of Rwanda’s Diplomats, armed forces, banking, postal services etc.
The High Commissioner said that during his tenure, he will try his best for early signing of all the pending agreements/MoUs, which will provide formal channels for interaction and cooperation in various fields, especially trade and investment. He will also try for exchange of working, Ministerial and business level delegations to and from Pakistan.
