Rwanda, Netherlands Pledge to Bolster Economic Ties

Rwanda and the Kingdom of The Netherlands have pledged to maintain strong ties with emphasis on investment, officials from both countries have said. They were speaking during celebrations to mark the Dutch King's Day at the Ambassador's residence in Nyarutarama, a Kigali suburb. Over the years, several Dutch companies have invested in Rwanda, including Heineken, Royal DSM that holds the majority shares in Africa Improved Foods Company, Unilever in Tea processing and KLM Airlines. Also, a recent Horticulture investors' conference led to a contract between a Rwandan horticultural company and their Dutch counterparts to supply year round fresh vegetables. The Dutch envoy to Rwanda, Fredrique de Man, said that there is need for the two countries to further strengthen their cooperation on trade and investment. "These are exciting times for doing business in Rwanda. And at the embassy we are looking forward to remain in constant dialogue with the Rwandan authorities and the business community on intensifying our commercial exchanges and on the transparency, clear procedures, the level playing field and the innovation and creativity needed to achieve this.""At the same time, we highly value the great work of civil organisations who keep us, Rwanda and the Netherlands, 'awake' on a wide range of societal challenges," she said. In his remarks, Olivier Nduhungirehe, the Minister of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and East African Community, commended the Dutch support in Rwanda's development over the last 24 years and pledged continued commitment in the cooperation.
