The signing ceremony transpired following discussions between President Kagame and King Abdullah II, with government representatives from both nations in attendance. In addition to the comprehensive cooperation pact, agreements were inked on the same day concerning the elimination of double taxation on income and the prevention of tax evasion and avoidance.
These newly signed agreements complement existing accords in areas such as political consultations, aiming to foster cooperation in trade and investment, tourism, and agriculture.
Among the Rwandan dignitaries present at the ceremony were Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Vincent Biruta, Minister of Trade and Industry Prof. Jean Chrysostome Ngabitsinze, CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB) Francis Gatare, and Secretary-General of the National Security and Intelligence Service (NISS) Maj Gen Joseph Nzabamwita.
King Abdullah II’s visit to Rwanda, spanning three days, commenced on Sunday evening, with President Kagame extending a warm welcome at Kigali International Airport. In an earlier meeting with King Abdullah II in August 2023, Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Vincent Biruta revealed Rwanda’s intention to establish its embassy in Jordan’s capital, Amman.
