Africa We Want


Amman, June 4 (Petra) - Jordan Businessmen Association (JBA) and Rwandan Embassy discussed ways to strengthen bilateral economic relations and opportunities for new economic partnership. During his meeting Tuesday with the Rwandan Ambassador to Amman, Urujeni Bakuramutsa, JBA President, Hamdi Tabba’a, stressed the importance of building “advanced” economic cooperation that achieves common interests.

Tabba’a said this bid comes, in light of the “distinguished” relations at various levels supported and sponsored by the two countries’ leadership, represented by His Majesty King Abdullah II’s visit to Rwanda last January to sign numerous agreements in the fields of health, science, agriculture and economics.

Tabba’a also stressed the importance of strengthening and expanding partnerships in various fields, especially health care, medicine, agriculture and tourism, and the necessity of enhancing trade exchange and facilitating joint investment opportunities, especially since Jordan enjoys “high” investment advantages and an “attractive” area for investments.

In this regard, he called for presenting existing investment opportunities in Rwanda to Jordanian investors.

Meanwhile, Bakuramutsa stressed the need to expand cooperation horizons in various fields, enhance exchange of expertise, transfer technology and training experience, establish investments and achieve integration in various investment, commercial and economic sectors, as Rwanda is one of the four strongest economies in Africa.

Calling for building on the outcomes of His Majesty King Abdullah II’s visit to Rwanda, Bakuramutsa noted the King established “long-term” bilateral economic relations, noting the importance of Jordan’s tourism sector, thanks to its civilization and “attractive” tourist sites.

The diplomat noted her country’s keenness to strengthen economic and trade relations with the Kingdom, exploit the “safe and stable” business environment in Jordan, and increase trade, especially in the pharmaceutical and information technology industries.

In a statement Tuesday, JBA said volume of mutual trade exchange reached $1.7 million in 2022, compared to $1.5 million in 2021.
