“We have urged these companies from China to bring their investments to Rwanda since the Government has a plan and strategies to boost the economy based on manufacturing,” Philip Lucky, the Head of Investment at RDB, said.
He noted that agricultural technologies are important to Rwanda’s economic growth.
“China has different technologies in manufacturing but also their economy is based on agriculture and livestock. If you follow global economic trends, China is actually one of the biggest exporters of agricultural products.
“Investments from China were worth $59 million in 2018. We want that those investments increase to at least $100 million investments. If you look at the list of investments coming to Rwanda, China investments are among the top five. This assures that their investments will keep increasing as well as other business,” he said.
“Under the Visit Rwanda campaign, we are also looking at how we can attract more tourists from China. We have also tour packages on this platform so that Chinese who wish to visit Rwanda can easily access information on this platform,” he said.
Adam Li, the company’s Project manager, said that they are looking for their agents in Rwanda.
“We brought samples to Kigali to find who would be the right person to be our agent here. This is my purpose. For instance, we have agents in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Congo, Cameroon and others,” he added.
