Rwanda, Jan 16 – Camaraderie of entrepreneurs and investors from France are in Rwanda, in search of business opportunities in the country. The group is steered by former French President Nicholas Sarkozy who is exploring business loopholes to take advantage of.
Sarkozy is on a two day trip to Rwanda and begun the official meeting with the states Premier Paul Kagame. He went on to meet Rwanda Development Board (RDB) officials, who are in charge of the major investments in the national economy. The partnership will profit the partners involved in expanding their industries for a wider market.
The major areas of investment opportunities include hospitality, conference tourism and transport, whose major achievement would be catapulted by more attention to them. France understands that tourism in the country is a fundamental sector, drawing light with the major changes in the gorilla conservation habitat.
The transport sector is in need of improved infrastructure to better the movement of goods and services to their destination in good time.
