Business leaders taking part in Citi FM’s Hello Kigali business tour will today meet players in Rwanda’s business sector.
The leaders will be hosted by the Chairman of the Private Sector Federation which is a key business association in Rwanda as they enter day four of the business tour.
The focus of the Hello Kigali tour is to expose businesses to a first-hand experience of how a country with a recent genocide history, has turned around its story making it an investment hub within sub-Saharan Africa.
Apart from being hosted by the Private Sector Federation, the CEO of the Rwandan Registrar General will also meet with the hello Kigali group to speak to them on investment opportunities in the country as well as the investment climate.
In what perhaps will be the climax for the day, will be the hosting of the team by the Mayor of Kigali City.
Meanwhile the team the day before met with a number of Ghanaians who have excelled tremendously in the Rwanda’s corporate and business industries.
They included the CEO of Airtel Rwanda Micheal Adjei, CEO of Tigo Rwanda Michael Amoateng and deputy program leader of CIP Robert Ackatia -Armah.
They were also given access to key organizations in Rwanda that have successfully rolled out the paperless system including Rwanda’s judiciary services and its land centre, which is equivalent to Ghana’s Lands Commission.
Authorities of the two institutions revealed to the participants how they made the change.
President of the High commercial court of Rwanda Emmanuel Kamere speaking to Citi Business News after the meeting pledged Rwanda’s support in helping Ghana to also switch to a paperless regime.
“We no longer have people queuing in our registries so we think we are doing well but we also need to learn from our friends and neighbors. We also need to learn from Ghana’s experience so the best thing now is to try and keep networking so that we can be exchanging experiences in the future,” he said.
“Most of you are in the communication industry like Citi FM so we will be networking. Any time you want to benefit from our experiences, we are ready to assist and we hope you will also be ready to assist us when we seek your cooperation,” Mr. Kamere added.
Prior to that, authorities at the Rwandan lands centre also committed to help Ghana ride on the back of technology to transform the sector.
The Hello Kigali tour ends tomorrow, January 28, 2017.
