Rwandan traders should take advantage of the bilateral cooperation agreement signed between Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea recently to exploit the business opportunities the Central African country presents, John Mirenge, the RwandAir chief executive officer, has said.
Mirenge told The New Times in an interview that Equatorial Guinea has huge opportunities in agro-processing, mining, tourism and wood processing, as well as in the coffee and oil sectors that Rwanda’s private sector could tap to boost trade between the two countries.
A fortnight ago, Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea signed a general cooperation agreement in different areas, including air transport, trade, investment, tourism development, security, energy, mineral and agriculture development, health and ICT. Operating regular flights between the capitals of two countries by RwandAir was one of the key components of the agreement. Mirenge said the national carrier was looking to ride on the back of this agreement to expand its operations into the Central African country.
