Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair visits our Rwanda solar field

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair visited our Rwanda solar field last week. He was escorted on a tour of the facility by Energiya Global's co-founder and Managing Director, Chaim Motzen.

Blair called the project "a great vote of confidence for the country and its future."

"It’s of a size which is unusual as well and it will increase the capacity of electricity by around 6 per cent. At different levels this is an important and symbolic project,”

Tony Blair is the patron of the Strategic Capacity Building Initiative, a pioneering partnership between the Government of Rwanda and Africa Governance Initiative (Agi) - which supported the project by providing capacity for the government in negotiating investment deals.

“It’s a really important investment and a great international collaboration. This is a good example of what Rwanda can be,” said Blair.

We agree!
