“We also want them to help us in introducing technology that promotes good governance through fast shared information. This will help us to avoid bureaucracy during services delivery” he added.

He said that their wish to KOICA to train many people capable of developing the country through ICT.

“They should go beyond partnership with government institutions and start working with different private companies and individual entrepreneurs” he said.

The KOICA country director, Lee Byung Hwa said that they will keep cooperation with Rwanda in different sectors.

“It is of great value for us to operate in a country like this, today, we are evaluating our achievements and seeking solutions for some encountered hindrances, we always wish to cooperate with a country that desire development, we hope to achieve much more through cooperation” he said.

KOICA started working from Rwanda in 2011 by supporting different development projects like rural development, agriculture and animal resources, education, good governance and technology among others.
