“Here at the Embassy we are excited to see the outcome of this visit and we hope it will lead to an even deeper bond between Sweden and Rwanda, an increase in Swedish investment beyond the development cooperation in the country, and ultimately a better and healthier environment.”

During the trip, a range of topics will be discussed in seminars, workshops and panel discussions.

The Embassy is also hosting a cocktail reception at Mille Collines in honor of the visit.
