This commitment was made during his discussions with Rwandan entrepreneurs present at the 58th edition of the Maputo International Fair (FACIM).
This event, which commenced on August 28, 2023, and will conclude on September 3, 2023, in Marracuene, Maputo, was officially opened by the Mozambican President, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi.
Rwanda was represented at the official opening ceremony by High Commissioner to Mozambique, Claude Nikobisanzwe. Nyusi, accompanied by various dignitaries, took the time to visit stands showcasing Rwandan products. He also engaged with Rwandan investors participating in the fair.
In total, 21 Rwandan entrepreneurs were present, operating in various sectors such as agri-food processing, coffee, fashion, technological services, beauty products, and meat processing. The Rwandan presence at FACIM aims to introduce and promote Rwandan products in the Mozambican market, thereby creating bilateral trade opportunities.
It’s worth noting that this is Rwanda’s second participation in this fair, with the first one taking place the previous year in August. Nyusi expressed his satisfaction with the Rwandan participation and reiterated his commitment to facilitating the processes for Rwandan companies wishing to establish a presence in Mozambique.
This year’s FACIM welcomed participants from 25 countries, including Rwanda, and featured 300 foreign companies as well as 1,950 local enterprises.
