a "Business Sweden" delegation eyes investments and opportunities in the Aviation Sector
Business Sweden and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs invite you to participate in a delegation with the purpose of capturing the business opportunities connected to investments in upgrading of, as well as construction of new, airports in Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. The purpose of the delegation is to provide Swedish companies with the opportunity to meet with key decision makers from the Ministry of Transport, the Airport authority, financing institutions and, relevant contractors in charge of the projects in the respective countries.
A greenfield airport, the Bugesera International Airport, located 25 kilometres southeast of Kigali, is expected to complement Kigali International Airport (KIA) which is operating beyond its capacity of 300,000 passengers a year. Passenger traffic through KIA grew by 30 per cent to ~ 489 000 in 2012, up from 377 000 in 2011.
The new Bugesera airport is expected to be built to handle two to three million passengers annually. The first phase of the construction is set to begin this year, and is planned to end in 2017, at an estimated cost of SEK 4 billion. The construction includes a 4.2 kilometre runway and cargo and passenger terminals.
The new Bugesera Airport will be the largest investment in Rwanda’s history and the government is said to be finalising talks with China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) to construct the Bugesera International Airport. It is also expected that the Rwandan government will work with CSCEC to reach a financing solution from Exim Bank.
