The MoU was signed by the Director General of Rwanda Transport Development Agency (RTDA), Imena Munyampenda and the Board Chairman of National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ), Martin T. DINHA.
The Memorandum of Understanding signed stands for the collaboration in the areas of capacity building, the exchange of staff and expertise in railway transport development sector and the secondment programmes among others.
"We are undergoing initial phases to start a railway project yet Zimbabwe has longstanding experience. For instance, Zimbabwe has more than 2000-kilometers railway while Rwanda seeks to build 400-kilometers railway. So, we can learn a lot from them," said Minister Gatete.
Minister Tapirwa Mhona and his delegation are in Rwanda for five-day working visit. On Thursday, they also visited the Integrated Development Program (IDP) Model Village in Kinigi sector, Musanze district of Northern Province built for 144 families from informal settlements.
