Hello Kigali to expose businesses to Rwanda’s technological success

The country Manager for RwandAir in Ghana, Shukrani Edy Hemedy has assured participants of Citi Fm’s Hello Kigali tour to brace themselves to among other things experience the major technological developments achieved in Rwanda.

According to him, technology is one key area that has helped in instigating the success story of Rwanda.

“We have indeed expanded our technology offers; from our airlines through to the commercial buses. Another way is that President Kagame himself is promoting IT in the country with his strong presence on social media platforms. This automatically attracts people to engage in the same way and makes it relatively cheaper to offer technology services,” Shukrani Edy Hemedy remarked.

Unlike other sub-Saharan economies, Rwanda currently undertakes most transactions including tax payments via electronic platforms in a bid to reduce corruption associated with face to face interaction.

Speaking on Business Today ahead of the tour, Mr. Shukrani further assured participants of realistic and effective business ideas by the end of the tour.

“Now even in our airplane, RwandAir, you can have WIFI on board so it’s no longer the situation that you have to travel from say Ghana to Europe before you will be connected after you’ve got there. So even in aircrafts, everything is connected,” he stated.

The country manager for Rwanda’s national airline further asserted, “We are promoting IT in the whole country. When you get to Rwanda, there are lots of amazing things to look out for including, the cities and cleanness, the lifestyle and others. It is better to tell people to go see and experience it themselves then they will understand what we have all been excited and talking about.”

The Hello Kigali Tour, which is being organized by Citi Fm, is to expose businesses and individuals to a first-hand experience of how a country with a recent genocide  history, has turned around its story making it an investment hub within sub-Saharan Africa.

Participants of the Hello Kigali tour, will meet key policy makers including the Registrar General of Companies, Commissioner for Domestic taxes, Mayor of Kigali City and as well visit the Genocide Memorial in Kigali.

The five day experience of the Rwandese success story is from 24th to 28th January 2017.
