A three-day Made in Rwanda exhibition kicked off today in Stockholm, Sweden where Rwandan exporters will be looking to increase exports of their products to Nordic countries.
The exhibition, organised by the Embassy of Rwanda in Sweden together with RDB, features a variety of Rwandan products such as tea and coffee, chilli, fresh fruits and vegetables, and handcrafts among others being showcased to about 200 importers and diaspora from Nordic countries.
Business to business (B2B) meetings are also taking place along the margins of the exhibition, with Rwandan exporters negotiating future business partnerships with Nordic businesses.
Speaking at the event opening, First Secretary at the embassy, Mr. Alfred Rukeribuga said:
“This exhibition has been organised to promote sales of value-added Rwandan products in the Nordic market by increasing their awareness as well as making efforts to secure shelf space for them in major selling outlets. Through this, we hope to increase the demand for Rwandan products in the long-term.”
