The Embassy of Rwanda in The Hague invited the Friends of Rwanda in the Netherlands for a working lunch at the Carlton Ambassador Hotel in The Hague, the Netherlands. Ambassador Jean Pierre Karabaranga initiated this informal gathering in order to update the Friends on the latest news and developments in Rwanda, but also to have lively discussions where experiences and ideas could be shared with each other and with the Embassy of Rwanda.
More than 30 Friends of Rwanda accepted the invitation and attended the event on Wednesday 3 May 2017. Among the guests were representatives from business & investment organizations, NGO’s, former MP's, religious institutions, tourism industry operators and from the energy sector and sports sector.
The gathering was experienced as beging a positive occasion to hear encouraging stories from other experienced Rwanda friends and to learn from their initiatives.
