European Union seeks to support the private sector, skills development and job creation in Rwanda, according to European Union Head of Delegation to Rwanda, Nicola Bellomo.

Nicola Bellomo said on May 9 during the celebration of the Europe Day held at his residence in Rwanda's capital, Kigali. In a media conversation, Bellomo opined that the current cooperation between the European Union and Rwanda is focusing on energy, infrastructure and agriculture; but other options are being considered for the future.

"We have political dialogue in different sectors and of course, our development cooperation is these days focused on energy, infrastructure and agriculture; but as we approach the end of this cycle, we are already considering options for the future," he opined.

"Supporting the private sector, investment and job creation will be on top of our agenda, as well as skills development in order to improve the attractiveness of Rwanda as a business destination. We are ready to engage with our Rwandan counterparts to devise a shared agenda for the future," he added, as reported by The New Times.

The partnership between the European Union and Rwanda is highly being lauded by Nicola Bellomo. He cited the recent visit of Jean-Claude Junker, the EU President in April 2019 as a signal of the quality and the level of the partnership.
