Kigali, 28 March 2014

President Kagame today received the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Seychelles, Dr. Patrick Herminie who has been on a 5-day visit to Rwanda.

Speaking to the press after meeting President Kagame, Dr. Patrick Herminie said Rwanda andSeychelles have a lot to do together in order to grow their economies:

“Seychelles has made significant advancement mainly in terms of tourism and I believe Rwanda whose national carrier now goes to different places of the continent can take advantage of this. Rwandair could not only promote Rwanda tourism in Seychelles but can also ferry merchandise to Seychelles from Rwanda especially Agriculture products and bring whats needed from Seychelles to Rwanda.”

The President of the Rwanda Senate, Dr. Ntawukiliryayo Damascene said the discussion between the Seychelles Speaker and President Kagame dwelt mainly on ways of strengthening cooperation between the two countries.
