(Ecofin Agency) - Some of Rwanda’s officials have just completed the 4-day training organized by the Chinese e-commerce giant, on the economic issues related to the international e-commerce platform (eWTP) their country has been connected to since October 2018.  

During the training, they were also informed of the impact of the digital sector on the economy, finance, logistics and trade notably.

It was hosted in Hangzhou, at the group’s headquarters and was attended by the chief executive of the NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL EXPORT DEVELOPMENT BOARD (NAEB), Rwanda’s ambassador to China, representatives of the ministry of commerce and industry, the higher education council, the public procurement regulator, the Rwanda Energy Group (REG) and the Minister of ICT and Innovation.

"This New Economy Workshop is meant to not only provide capacity building to Rwanda's policy makers, but also to inspire them to become advocates for Rwanda's digital transformation and for the country's technology entrepreneurs", explained Angel Zhao, President of Alibaba's Globalization Leadership Group. 

By becoming the first African pole for the eWTP, Rwanda has decided to capitalise on the digital sector, a pillar for its future growth, to promote the products and know-how of its companies, farmers and other professionals.
