Rwanda tourism set to welcome the next Commonwealth Meeting
Branding as the Land of a Thousand Hills, Rwanda has been chosen the next host of the Commonwealth Heads of State Meeting the forthcoming two years.
Honoured to host the next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in 2020, Rwanda will be the next nation in East Africa to host the Commonwealth Summit after 2007 CHOGM held in Uganda.
Rising as Africa’s unique tourist destination by its gorilla and nature conservation with sustainable tourism, Rwanda has seen fast progress resulting from its strategy to develop travel, tourism and hospitality value chain which had attracted global attention.
The Commonwealth leaders have chosen Rwanda to host their next heads of government meeting in 2020, taking an advantage of Rwanda’s premier conference facilities including the classic accommodation and convention service available in the country’s capital, Kigali, reports from London said.
Five Star hotels and other lodges in Rwanda have been designed with presidential suits to accommodate prominent personalities.
Reports from London confirmed that Rwanda has been selected as host of the next CHOGM by the UK Prime Minister Teresa May shortly after the end of this year’s Meeting that took place in the British capital, London.
The Commonwealth of Nations is now a community of 54 countries, mostly former British colonies with a combined population of about 2.4 billion.
Rwanda applied to join the Commonwealth of Nations in 2008 as a nation without a British colonial past, and then joined the bloc in 2009 to bring to 54 total nations in the world.
Hosting the Commonwealth summit is a huge endorsement to national efforts made by Rwanda to become an internationally recognised meetings and conference destination.
