1 min read

The governments of Rwanda and Singapore have signed Bilateral Air Services Agreements which could possibly see RwandAir expand its flights to the Asian country in future.

“We have signed agreements that would see RwandAir operate in Singapore or Singapore airline come to Rwanda,” Amb Claver Gatete, the Minister of Infrastructure said just after the signing ceremony on 14 June.

Gatete added that Rwanda can learn a lot from Singapore in the area of aviation, due to Singapore’s Changi Airport being rated as one of the top is rated airports globally.

Both countries have also signed investment agreement that will allow investors of both countries to freely do business in either country.

Gatete said that in the agreement they have determined that “anyone from Singapore who will invest in Rwanda will be considered like any other Rwanda business people and any Rwandan investor in Singapore will be treated like any national doing business home.

Tharman Shanmugaratman, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore who was the head of the thirty-man delegation from Singapore said that the agreement will bring mutual interests.

“It is our privilege. Rwanda as a country that has had a fair share of challenges that very few countries have been through, and we feel it is our responsibility to partner with you and to share our experiences,” he said.
