This is according to Emmanuelle Nicholls, event director of the upcoming iPAD Rwanda Power & Infrastructure Investment Forum in Kigali in November.

She adds: “the high-level support from the government and parastatals was paramount to last year’s successful launch of iPAD Rwanda when we welcomed more than 250 industry experts and stakeholders in Kigali. With our follow-up event this year from 5-6 November we will once again offer the perfect platform for private investors, project developers, consultants, technology and solution providers and financiers looking for opportunities in Rwanda’s energy, infrastructure and mining sectors.”

Market entry for investors
Official government partners are the Rwanda Energy Group Ltd (REG), comprising the Energy Development Corporation Ltd and the Energy Utility Corporation Ltd, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Rwanda Development Board and the Rwanda Utilities Regulator Authority are once again official partners for the event. Says headline speaker and CEO of REG, Mr Jean Bosco Mugiraneza: “the two day forum provides market entry for international as well as local investors. We look forward to an interactive B2B conference agenda alongside a product showcase with site visits demonstrating the proactive nature of Rwanda’s business climate”.

New on the programme this year says iPAD Rwanda’s Emmanuelle Nicholls will be “a special session that will explore the synergies between the mining and power industries, shedding the light on upcoming projects capturing investment opportunities for the year ahead. Additionally the Forum will showcase utility management challenges and best practices, demonstrating Rwanda’s proactive nature to work with the private sector in order to drive sustainable growths and operations”.

She adds: “furthermore, visits to recently commissioned projects will be undertaken to offer access to restricted sites and highlights successful implementation, encouraging further developments and investments into the country’s untapped energy potentials.

Conference will provide direct access
Says Emmanuelle Nicholls: “this year’s conference agenda will provide direct access to project tenders, ventures for the year ahead while exploring the sector’s regulatory environment, utility management and best practices while identifying key constraints that are hindering the sector from advancing to its potentials.”

She continues: “participants are able to identify new business opportunities and partnerships in their specific sectors of interest by joining the roundtable discussions focused on the procurement of power projects in Rwanda’s energy sector.”
