Rwanda, also called “land of a thousand hills”, has an attractive investment climate with rapid economic growth, and scoring second on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index in Africa. Over the years, the country has attracted a wide set of Dutch businesses across various sectors of the economy offering high-tech solutions and contributing to the ‘Made in Rwanda’ brand. Nonetheless, ample investment opportunities continue to exist for Dutch companies within the agricultural, infrastructure, ICT, energy, construction and water sectors.

Join our webinar on June 23rd to learn from local Dutch entrepreneurs who have already successfully been doing business in Rwanda for the past years, as they will also shine light on how they deal with the economic downturn caused by COVID-19. We are delighted to be joined by the Dutch ambassador in Rwanda, H.E. Mr Matthijs Wolters, the Rwandan ambassador for the Netherlands H.E. Mr Jean Pierre Karabaranga and a representative of the Rwanda Development Board. Companies that are either active or interested in entering the Rwandan market are invited to join NABC’s webinar on Tuesday the 23rd of June from 11:00 – 12:20 CEST. Participation is free of cost
