Last month, Rwanda and Ghana resolved to boost bilateral relations with a broad, varied economic agenda at the core. In the same period, Rwanda inaugurated the Chancery of the Rwandan High Commission in Accra.
The two countries also pledged their commitment to make the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement (AfCFTA), whose secretariat is hosted by Ghana, work.
The commitment of the two governments came as a major boost to intra-Africa trade prospects ahead of the implementation of AFCFTA agreement, set to come into force in January 2021.
