For the very first time on Monday, business delegates from the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Private sector attended the Rwandan National trade fair.
The agreement comes after the DRC announced it would be joining the East African region, hoping to boost its exports to other countries in the region.
The event is viewed as an opportunity for the countries to make sales and exhibit the new products and to sign a trade agreement with the Rwandan Private Sector Federation that will facilitate trade and boost business cooperation between them.
Stakeholders in the agreement further called on the inclusion of local traders in the deal for the benefit of locals between the two countries.
Rwanda is also eyeing the wide market in Congo for Rwandan products.
