Welcoming address of the Ambassador

Welcome to the website of the Belgian embassy in Kigali

This site is for all the users of services of the Belgian embassy in Kigali, Rwanda and for all interesting in knowing more about Belgium or Rwanda.

Our objective remains to continue to build and strengthen the relations between Belgium and Rwanda, politically and economically, but also between the people, the citizens of Rwanda and Belgium. We pay attention to sports (both cycling federation cooperate), culture and the creative economy.

Last year was well stocked on activities in that field. We supported the Kigali Fashion Week, with the participation of the Antwerp designer Ann Buermans, the Ubumuntu Theater Festival, with the production “Body Revolution” of Toneelhuis, Antwerpen, the EANT dance festival, with the Brussels choreographer and dancer Jan Wallyn and last but not least two beautiful and forceful concerts by pianist Jef Neve, each time accompanied by local musicians, well established or upcoming.

The UCI race “Tour of Rwanda”, in November, was in 2016 widely observed by international media and by UCI board member and Belgian Cycling federation president Tom Van Damme.

An alumni-network of Rwandese having studied in Belgium was created.

Through our facebookpage (Embassy of Belgium in Kigali) you will find up to date information on our activities.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We are there for you.
