The establishment of the eWtp platform in Rwanda sounds like a way to boost the digital economy in Africa. From there to be competitive with other continents.
Entrepreneurs, project leaders, political and diplomatic leaders… A very strong mobilization in line with the ceremony on Wednesday, October 31 in Kigali.
A ceremony dedicated to the launch of the eWtp platform, the first global e-commerce platform to be established on the African continent, with Rwanda as its host country.
By unveiling the commemorative plaque alongside Jack Ma, Executive President of the Alibaba Group and global e-commerce giant, President Paul Kagame put his country on orbit for the practice of the digital economy. Not only Rwanda, but Africa as a whole.
“I hope that from today, eWTP Rwanda will be able to support small businesses, youth and women here in Africa and sell their products to enable them to buy, sell, deliver, pay and travel around the world,” said Jack Ma.
Alibaba will work with the Rwanda Development Council to help Rwandan companies sell their most popular products, including coffee and handicrafts.
