High delegation from GGGI HQ, Korea Institute on Climate Change and KEXIM Bank visit Rwanda

A delegation made of officials from the main Office of Global Green Growth Institute in Seoul and the Korea Institute on Climate Change were received in Rwanda by officials in Rwanda’s Ministry of infrastructure and GGGI Rwanda Team.

TOP AFRICA NEWS has learnt that this week, the Global Green Growth Institute Rwanda team welcomed a delegation of officials from Export-Import Bank of Korea, Korea Research Institute on Climate Change, and specialists from GGGI headquarters for the Inception Seminar for the project on “Enhancing Institutional Capacities for Facilitating the Use of Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes Through Electric Mobility.”

They were also welcomed by officials from Rwanda’s Ministry of Infrastructure as it was planned on their schedule.

According to Michelle Defreese, senior officer at GGGI Rwanda “The delegation, led by Mr. Kim Chan-Woo, Former Ambassador for Climate Change to Kenya and Brazil, presented the ongoing collaboration between KEXIM and GGGI, past technical assistance GGGI has provided to facilitate the transition to emobility in Mexico, Jordan, and the Philippines, the results of the pre-feasibility study conducted in the City of Kigali, and the aims of the Korea Knowledge Sharing Program (KSP) of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MoEF) of the Republic of Korea.”

The visit coincides with the 60th anniversary of bilateral relations between Rwanda and Korea and is part of the Republic of Korea’s ongoing efforts to engage in knowledge sharing, capacity building, and technology transfer in areas of mutual interest in key partner countries.

The KSP initiative builds upon GGGI’s previous projects on emobility in Rwanda including:

✅ RW27-Supporting the Transition to E-mobility in Rwanda
✅ RW31-Smart and Electric Public Transport Services for Low-Carbon City Development in Rwanda
✅ RW42-Mobilizing Climate Finance for Electric Public Transport in Rwanda and Increasing Market Access in the Kivu Belt Region
