Malta Chamber signs cooperation agreement with Rwandan counterpart

The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry has signed a cooperation agreement with its Rwandan counterpart, its first such agreement with a chamber from sub-Saharan Africa.

The memorandum of understanding with the Rwanda Private Sector Federation was also the first signed via a virtual call, in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Ahead of the signing, chamber president David Xuereb said that the agreement would help build new bridges for Malta’s business community.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Rwanda Private Sector Federation, who share several of our ambitions for collaboration and mutual growth. As Malta Chamber, together with our affiliated organisation Trade Malta, we are excited to tap into new opportunities and to grow together, with a special emphasis on key areas such as aviation, IT and fin-tech,” Xuereb said.

The chamber said that the agreement provides for active cooperation with the principal aim of promoting trade, investment and business cooperation opportunities among the business communities in the two countries. The two parties agreed to facilitate actions leading to the promotion and development of commercial exchanges and economic c-operation between interested companies, and to continuously identify possibilities for the promotion and development of bilateral ties, commercial exchanges and economic cooperation.
