On Thursday President Paul Kagame arrived in Tanzania for a 2-working visit.
President Kagame had a tete a tete meeting with President Samia Suluhu Hassan, followed by a bilateral meeting involving both leaders' delegations.
President Kagame thanked Tanzania for its role in regional security and emphasized the importance of the mutual cooperation between the two countries, particularly in the development of trade and commerce.
The cooperation between Rwanda and Tanzania is primarily focused on trade and business activities. Rwandans use the port of Dar es Salaam, and goods from Rwanda are also taken to Tanzania. Currently, 80% of goods entering Rwanda pass through the port of Dar Es Salaam, highlighting the importance of the relationship between the two countries.
President Samia Suluhu Hassan expressed her belief that the benefits of cooperation between Rwanda and Tanzania should be more extensive than it currently is.
In August 2021, President Suluhu paid a 2-day visit to Rwanda, and the two countries signed cooperation agreements in various fields, including the economy and education.
President Kagame's visit to Tanzania further emphasizes the importance of mutual cooperation between the two countries and highlights the strong bonds of friendship and cooperation that exist between Rwanda and Tanzania.
