As Britain prepares for the BREXIT by 31st January 2020, the UK High Commissioner in Rwanda Joanne Lomas has reaffirmed her country's commitment to sign deals with African countries including Rwanda that will see African products entering UK markets with quota and tariff-free.

This was revealed during the Press Conference on the upcoming UK-Africa Summit that is scheduled for 20th January 2020

Securing investment deals, creating jobs for the jobless in Africa will be top on agenda during the UK-Africa Summit expected to take place in London next Monday.

The Summit will attract 21 African leaders including 16 heads of State among them Rwanda President HE Paul Kagame who is expected to deliver his remarks.

The UK High Commissioner in Rwanda Joanne Lomas tells more about the Summit.

As the BREXIT awaits at the end of this month, the UK intends to sign deals with African countries on trade that will see African products exonerated from quatas and tariffs.

According to the High Commissioner, UK is working closely with Rwanda in preparations of the forthcoming CHOGM Summit expected to take place here in Rwanda in June.

The Head of the DFID in Rwanda Sarah METCALF told members of the press that Rwanda's economic progress recorded for quite some time now will be  an opportunity for Rwanda to lobby for global investors.

Since 1998, the UK has invested over 1 Billion pounds into various aspects and Rwanda has on the other hand in 2017 exported products to the European markets worth 500 million USD
