MINEAC Promises Fairer Trade to Rwandans

Honourable Amb. Valentine Rugwabiza, the Minister for East African Community Affairs, promised that Government of Rwanda will do whatever it takes to facilitate Rwandan traders to benefit a fair market share of the growing trade in the region.

This was in January this year during the 5th Breakfast Meeting organized by PSF for its members. The quite interactive meeting touched a number of other issues relating to linking members to regional markets. Both the private sector and the ministry agreed on stepping up facilitation of Rwandan exporters.

In his remarks, Mr. Benjamin Gasamagera, the Chairman of Private Sector Federation, urged Government of Rwanda to do more to completely eliminate Non Tariff Barriers (NTBs) and commended the progress so far made in that direction.
