Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and Rwanda Chamber of Tourism (RCT) have inked an agreement with the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA) and the East African Tourism Platform (EATP) to develop business and leisure travel in the East African Community.

Signed this week in Nairobi Kenya, the deal will see RDB, RCT and KATA work together to implement tourism marketing and promotional programs of both countries (Rwanda and Kenya) by conducting joint-marketing activities that will drive visitors to the countries’ attractions and experiences.
