Cooperation at the bilateral level has been reflected in numerous visits exchanges at a high level, political discussions and signed agreements in the fields of economy, rule of law, water management and agricultural cooperation. The embassy is proud that the last 10 years have seen continued growth in bilateral cooperation between Rwanda and the Netherlands as reflected in engagements at both public and private sector levels.
“On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of Embassy of the Republic of Rwanda in The Hague, I want convey my heartfelt thanks to The Government, The Parliament of The Kingdom of The Netherlands, Municipalities and Towns, High learning Institutions and many other institutions and organizations in the Netherlands,” said Ambassador Karabaranga.
He added that most of the achievements couldn’t have been realized without the numerous collaborations with the Dutch government, the Dutch parliament and the countless number of partnerships with public, private, civil society organizations, Rwandan diaspora and Friends of Rwanda.
H.E. Ambassador Karabaranga concluded to say that he is looking forward to continue to work together with all of the Embassy’s partners and stakeholders to strengthen the already existing excellent relations between the two countries and explore more opportunities and possibilities for a brighter future.
The Embassy was established on 1 November 2006 and since then the Embassy of the Republic of Rwanda has built relations and partnerships in the Netherlands, not only in The Hague but also throughout all the provinces at all levels from political and economic issues to cultural and academic.
