Rwanda’s Embassy in China has encouraged companies and entrepreneurs to participate in the upcoming 3rd China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo (CAETE), scheduled to be held from June 29 to July 2, 2023, in Changsha, Hunan Province.

Organized by the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (MOFCOM) and the People’s Government of Hunan Province, CAETE is the most important exhibition within the framework of China-Africa Cooperation.

The biannual expo brings together all African countries and top Chinese leaders, economists, and business people. The expo focuses on key areas, including trade and investment promotion, agriculture technology, innovation, energy and power, joint industrial parks, infrastructure, financial cooperation, health, among others.

Participating in this event offers numerous benefits, including the opportunity to network with potential Chinese clients.

Chinese companies are always seeking new suppliers, and Rwandan companies can use this event to showcase their products and services and find new business partners.

In addition, the expo provides a platform for Rwandan companies to learn about the latest trends and technologies in their respective industries.

The event will feature high-level meetings and forums where participants can engage in discussions on economic policies, investment opportunities, and trade cooperation.

Rwandan companies can leverage these interactions to build relationships with potential partners, customers, and investors, and explore new business opportunities.

Mr. Samuel Abikunda, the Rwandan Commercial Attaché in China, highlighted the positive impact of the previous editions of the CAETE on Rwandan companies.

"The previous two editions of the China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo were a great success for Rwandan companies. Some of them, like Gashora Farm, were able to sign deals with their Chinese partners to export their products to China, which helped to significantly increase their revenue," he said.

Abikunda added that this is an excellent opportunity for Rwandan companies to showcase their products and services to the world and take their businesses to the next level.
