Description

Following an agreement made during the 2006 Beijing Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, the Chinese Government gave the Government of Rwanda a $4.5 million USD grant for the construction of an Agricultural Technology Demonstration Center in Rubona in Huye district. Although the project was agreed upon in 2006, the grant was not initially disbursed until August 20, 2008. The center consists of a production workshop, agro-products processing workshop, silkworm raising rooms and offices. The goal of the center is to contribute to the country's production and processing but also provide demonstrations, training, and field extensions. The center also provides Juncao technology (mushroom/fungi cultivation) courses to citizens who struggle with malnourishment in Rwanda. The groundbreaking ceremony for the project took place on April 2, 2009. The center was completed and officially launched on April 24, 2012 in a ceremony attended by Chinese Ambassador to Rwanda Shu Zhan and Rwandan Prime Minister Habumuremyi. Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University contributed to the implementation of this project. The demonstration fields focused on the production of paddy and silkworm. This grant is part of a total grant of 60,000,000 CNY, which was agreed to in 2006 for the construction of the Agricultural center as well as the construction of a polyclinic (see ID#1861).
