IF ONE took part in the Wielkopolska brand exhibition, which was organized on the occasion of ICT for Development, Education & Skills conference. The conference took place in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, on 26-28 September 2018. The trip and exhibition were organized as part of the "Wielkopolska Regional Operational Program for the years 2014-2020. Thanks for the participation in the exhibition and having its own stand on it, IF ONE has had a unique opportunity to create a microfinance: Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, Ghana.
In addition to Rwanda, this trip is for the benefit of Africa and overcoming stereotypes. Most of us 100,000 people were murdered on the tragic occasion of 100 years of conflict. Today, Rwanda is one of the most secure countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It is often said that it is Switzerland's Africa. This country has been developing very dynamically in recent years. Between 2001 and 2014, the average increase was 9%. According to the World Bank, Rwanda is currently in the 41st position, leaving behind such Italy, Belgium and Israel behind. Rwanda, having no access to valuable natural resources, focuses primarily on the development of modern technologies. Over 95% of Rwanda is covered by a 4G / LTE range. In many places, access to the Internet is carried out through fiber-optic networks. In Kigali, companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon have placed their branches. In addition, many other small companies operate in the areas of biomedicine, big data, cybersecurity, robotics and IoT infrastructure.
It seems that if we are to seriously think about the presence of Polish enterprises on the African market, considering the high activity of Asian companies, it is the last bell, and Rwanda can be a great bridgehead for expansion into other countries. For enterprises from Wielkopolska who want to develop their foreign activities, the Marshal's Office provides support.
