Rwanda is preparing to host the Omani Products Exhibition (OPEX) that will take place from January 15 to 18, 2020 in Kigali. The exhibition will reinforce the already strong relations between Rwanda and Oman and will attract food and beverage vendors, clothes brands, aluminium and asphalt manufacturing companies and construction companies from Oman.

The exhibition is being organised under the auspices of The Public Authority for Investment Promotion & Export Development (Ithraa) in partnership with The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn)

Maymuna al Adawi, Ithraa’s Director of Export Facilitation says the fact that Rwanda’s economy grew by 8.6% in 2018 is a motivation for other African countries.

She also noted that the economic performance of Rwanda makes it an attraction for investment from other economically stable countries.

“While many countries known to export considerable amounts of goods have shrinking economies, Rwanda keeps striving forwards with income from exports.”

She said Rwanda’s economic performance is impressive given that much of the national income is not derived from agricultural exports but from impeccable service provision that contributes to a continuously improving economy.

“We see great investment potential in Rwanda and we are confident the Omani Products Exhibition will be successful.”

Ayman bin Abdullah Al Hasani, Chairman of Opex Organising Committee says that products manufactured in Oman meet international standards and that the exhibition that will be held in Kigali will undoubtedly be successful given how productive previous exhibitions in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates were.

Omani Products Exhibition was launched in 2012 and Kigali will host the 10th exhibition that will showcase a variety of products and services manufactured in Oman and that are exported in more than 140 countries around the world.

Maymuna al Adawi, Ithraa's Director of Export Facilitation says the fact that Rwanda’s economy grew by 8.6% in 2018 is a motivation for other African countries.
