The Minister of Trade and Industry, Francois Kanimba asserted that the 2017 Rwanda Expo will take place at Kagarama in Kicukiro district. He made these remarks while closing the Gikondo Expo an International Trade fair that pulled a range of participators among which were Rwanda safari undertakers.
The move to host the 2017 Expo at Kagarama is designed to allow a great number of exhibitors to participate in the Expo since a standard ground will be setup on 18 – hectare of land for this cause. The visibility studies have already commenced and the construction is anticipated to have ended by 2017. This means that a range of products will be showcased thus availing various options of things to encounter while on safari in Rwanda.
It has been noted that Rwanda International Trade fair is one of those notable trade fairs that pull both International and national exhibitors to showcase their products. However, most of them have always been turned away due to limited space; something that can be seen to be hampering the increase of safaris to Rwanda.
The Gikondo Expo attracted exhibitors from various backgrounds of commerce including; agriculture, Information technology, Construction, Tourism among others.
