The third business forum will be an opportunity for the two countries to market the viable investment projects to the potential investors, site according to Uganda’s High Commissioner to Rwanda, malady Amb Richard Kabonero.

The first forum of its kind was held in 2012 in Kampala.

The second Summit, which was held in Kigali and attended by President Kagame, was organized by Uganda High Commission in partnership with Rwanda Development Board and Private Sector Federation.

President Kagame reminded the participants of the long standing history of partnership between Uganda and Rwanda:

“Rwandans and Ugandans were doing business with each other long before the two countries became states in the modern sense. It is only proper that we do everything possible to facilitate growth of the historical process of doing business together. Opportunities and solutions for economic growth lie within ourselves.”

President Kagame then challenged the business community to do more to ensure economic growth and transformation for the people of both nations:

“The business community has the challenge and responsibility to make our economies competitive and self-sustaining. This is the only way we can truly create prosperity for our people. Greater opportunities exist and I am convinced that we have hardly tapped the business potential to any significant extent.
