“The bilateral relations between two nations have been existing for quite a number of years and have been characterized by mutual respect, shared aspirations and have also been reflected with visible results,” Gasamagera said, in his remarks.

He added; “Our relations have been effective in many areas, including health where you had the chance to visit some testaments, others include infrastructure, education, agriculture and technology, but we also appreciate China’s contribution towards Rwanda’s development including in development financing among others.”
