Yoaz Hendel is in Rwanda since Thursday. He arrived in Kigali onboard Israir aircraft which landed in with 80 tourists from Israel.
Also present during the discussions were Rwanda’s Minister of ICT and Innovations, Paul Ingabire and Israel ambassador in Rwanda, Ron Adam.
Before holding discussions with President Kagame, Hendel and Ingabire signed Memorandum of Understanding aimed at strengthening collaboration in the areas of ICT and innovation to cement existing relationship.
The agreement will also pave the way for collaboration between business communities.
Rwanda and Israël relations date back in 1962 when the country obtained Independence.
In 2014, Rwanda became the first African country to sign bilateral agreements and later in 2015 opened embassy in Tel Aviv, Israël.
In January 2019, both countries signed bilateral air service agreement to operate direct flights.
In the same year, RwandAir started flights to Tel Aviv.
