EU – RWANDA BUSINESS FORUM

Kigali, 26-27 June 2023

Rwanda and the EU are key economic partners. EU investment represents more than 32% of Rwanda’s total FDI stock and is expanding. Rwanda boasts the highest growth among EAC countries, the second highest Doing Business Ranking in Africa, and has the vision to become a middle-income country by 2035. With its excellent business environment, its world-class business facilitation ecosystem, its young and dynamic population (65% below 30), and its stable economy, Rwanda is an ideal location for trade and investment, as well as the perfect  regional hub and springboard to other EAC markets.

The EU-Rwanda Business Forum aims to foster European trade & investment in Rwanda by highlighting economic opportunities and potential and showcasing Rwanda’s advantages as a regional hub. The event will promote Rwanda as a business destination, boost EU investment to create decent jobs and promote sustainable and diversified growth. In addition, the Business Forum will also feature development finance institutions which will explore investment opportunities under the European Fund for Sustainable Development +, one of the Global Gateway’s funding tools.

The event will be open to all interested sectors with a particular focus on agriculture/agro-processing, mining/raw material value chains, health and pharmaceutical sector and green economy (see tabs above for more information on the potential in these sectors).

In case you missed it: AFRICA’s MEGA infrastructure project – the Trans-African Highways across the #continent are progressing slowly but surely – what you should know: Envisaged more than 40 years ago by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the #AfricanDevelopmentBank (AfDB), and the #AfricanUnion in conjunction with regional international communities, is a network of #highways intended to connect all corners of #Africa from north to south, east to west. The ambitious plan, first proposed in 1971, is aimed at boosting 03.03.2023

 internal #trade on the #continent by building nine #roads linking major cities across Africa. Those networks would collectively measure nearly 60,000km.

While progress has been slow, the completion of this project will mark a new dawn for Intra-African trade. One of the nine planned roads is already complete – the 4,400km Trans-Sahelian Highway which runs through seven countries, connecting #Dakar#Senegal to #Ndjamena#Chad. While more than half of the network has been paved, maintenance remains an issue. The other eight highways are progressing steadily. https://lnkd.in/eDGuhmd

After almost 30 years in Africa, these are some of my thoughts By Laura Lykkegaard; 07.08.2022

The strength of Africa is the underlying and at times magic power in individuals, entrepreneurs and big corporates. Yes, we have beauty, great weather, awesome nature, amazing food and not least wine. But at the end of the day; I will ALWAYS highlight the South Africans I know and experience everyday, and the rest of the Africans I get to meet on my travels on the continent.

Watch out – be aware: If you once set foot in Africa you will be captured. All of us who visits or we who are lucky enough to live here all say the same; Africa gets under your skin.

The misunderstandings about Africa are mainly from the rest of the world, those who have not yet experienced Africa, the diversity of Africa, and not least the people of and great opportunities in Africa.

You might not yet know HOW big Africa is. Have a close look at this map. If you are not from Africa, you might – or might not – find your country displayed here for comparison. But hey… wow! Did you know Africa is this big?
Incredibly diverse, of course. There are 54 countries, and hundreds, if not thousands of cultures, languages within its 1,3 billion people.
A continent on the rise. An incredible wealth, and most importantly; the fastest growing middle class in the world, aspiring to live better, educate their children better, and having a better life all together.

I see it again and again when I welcome visitors in Cape Town and South Africa. It literally takes less than a day, and they start having questions such as; “How easy is it to start a business in South Africa?”, “Where should my family and I live – where are the best schools?”, “How do I go about employing locally?”, etc.

They DO NOT ask; “do you think it is worth our while?”, or “will I be happy”. After a few days here, they will do WHATEVER it takes for them to find a way move here.

I love my Africa. I love being a Capetonian.

Africa’s countries are rich in two invaluable assets – a burgeoning youth population and vast natural resources.
