Meeting between Dhaka Chamber and High Commissioner of Rwanda

Bangladeshi investors have a good prospect in the growing infrastructure sector of Africa’s one of the promising countries Rwanda, said Arman Haque, Senior Vice President of DCCI. Moreover, Arman Haque requested Rwanda’s importers to import steel, cement, eco-friendly brick, PVC pipe, electrical cable and skilled construction workers from Bangladesh. He told these in a meeting of DCCI with the High Commissioner of Rwanda Ms. Mukangira Jacqueline based in New Delhi at DCCI Gulshan Center on March 27, 2022.

Arman Haque also said that the bilateral trade volume between Bangladesh and Rwanda is very insignificant. Since Rwanda is a member of the East African Community (EAC) and Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA); Bangladesh can explore opportunities and forge collaboration with Rwanda in order to access other promising markets in the African continent, he added. Besides, generic medicine, jute, contract farming and furniture have a good prospect for Bangladeshi entrepreneurs in Rwanda. Arman Haque assured the High Commissioner that the Dhaka Chamber will extend its fullest cooperation in facilitating any business delegation from Rwanda.
