rwandan business delegation

Members of the Rwandan business delegation

A 32-member Rwandan business delegation recently visited the premises of Reroy Cables Factory located at the Tema Industrial Area to explore business opportunities.

After an hour-long tour of the factory, the Rwandans, who were in the country at the instance of the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), said they were surprised that a wholly-owned Ghanaian company had highly sophisticated machines which could, among other things, produce fire-resistant electrical cables, conductors and accessories.

Dennis Karera, Honourary Consul of Ghana in Rwanda, who led the delegation to the Reroy Cables factory, said the visit had given the Rwandans the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the operations of a Ghanaian manufacturing company.

?All these businessmen, who visited the Reroy Cables Factory, are members of the Rwandan Private Sector Federation. They are not only ready to learn from their counterparts like you but are also looking for opportunities to invest in Ghana.

?Today, Rwanda is recognized as the most competitive and best place to do business in East Africa due to the Government?s commitment to the private sector. Rwanda Air, its national airline, also flies to Ghana about five times in a week. Our Consulate is ready to assist any Ghanaian who wants to do business in Rwanda,? Mr Karera added.

On her part, Kate Quartey-Papafio, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Reroy Cables Factory, thanked the Rwandan trade delegation for the visit.

?The private sector, it is said, is the engine of growth for any nation?s economy. So, like my other colleagues at the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Reroy Cables is ready to do business in Rwanda. I shall be there soon,? she added.

The Rwandans, who were in Ghana for a three-day fact-finding trade and investment visit, have since left for home.
