From 17-22 November NABC organized a trade mission to Burundi and Rwanda. Two small countries with very high potential of economic growth and investments. This trade mission saw mainly participants from the infrastructure, agriculture and construction sector. A total of 12 companies joined this trade mission that started in Bujumbura with a ‘doing business in Burundi’ seminar opened by his Excellency the ambassador of the Netherlands mr. Jolke Oppewal. Afterwards during the matchmaking and the next day during the company visits the Dutch businesses got a change to find partners and to explore business opportunities. Three days later the delegation left for Rwanda. In Rwanda about 70 companies joined the matchmaking and first business deals were already done on the spot. The Embassy in Rwanda organized a beautiful reception where the networking continued.  From the 12 companies about 6 already did business in Burundi or Rwanda and they have established new contacts. About 6 companies were new to this region and 4 of them have found local partners and are doing business now, especially Rwanda was very popular.
