Doha, Qatar: Rwanda will showcase its beauty and exciting culture as part of the 80 participating countries at Expo 2023 Qatar. During the expo, Rwanda’s diverse range of horticulture produce, fascinating traditions, and its many delicious local foods would be on display.

The International Horticultural Expo 2023 will be held at Al Bidda Park from October 2, 2023, to March 28, 2024. The expo will focus on themes such as modern agriculture, technology and innovation, environmental awareness, and sustainability.

As Qatar takes the lead in hosting this horticultural exhibition in the Gulf, MENA, and arid region, this six-month exhibition will be classified as a World Exposition, signifying its global significance. This achievement adds to Qatar’s success in hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022.

During the recent third edition of the Qatar Economic Forum, Rwanda President H E Paul Kagame emphasised the vast opportunities for growth and investment in the GCC region.

The National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB), Rwanda Development Board (RDB), and the Expo directors have sealed a momentous contract, confirming Rwanda’s participation in the exhibition to showcase their modern agriculture.

“Horticulture in Rwanda may be a relatively new industry, but its rapid development is making a significant impact nationwide. With horticulture production spread across all 30 districts, Rwanda excels in four key categories: vegetables, fruits, nuts, and flowers.

The sector’s remarkable contribution of 28% to the national GDP showcases its economic potential and importance. It is also the sector that is driving the adoption of the most innovative agriculture techniques in Rwanda, ones that are respectful to our environment,” said H E Igor Marara, Ambassador of Rwanda to Qatar.

“We have been proudly serving the regional market, and now we aspire to reach international markets. We hope our products will find their place on the shelves of Qatari supermarkets,” shared an enthusiastic Rwandan confirmed participant, Bella Flower.

Bella Flowers is a leading producer of high-quality roses, grown in Rwanda since 2014.

With advanced facilities and pristine water from Lake Muhazi facilities and 22 rose varieties, they represent Rwanda’s commitment to sustainability and have made a name in the global floriculture industry.

This collaboration serves as another milestone in strengthening the relationship between Rwanda and Qatar, fostering economic growth, and facilitating the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
