DP World has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Rwanda Development Board, for Rwanda to be the first country in which it will launch its new global B2B and B2C e-commerce platform, DuBuy.com, early next year. Rwanda will become DP World’s initial hub for expanding e-commerce across the East Africa Community and beyond. The vision of this MoU is to make it easier for Rwandan businesses to engage in international trade, which includes strengthened commercial trading links between the UAE and Rwanda.
Businesses using DuBuy.com will also benefit from broader DP World services and investment that will help to facilitate and develop trade. In Rwanda this includes the promotion of exports of coffee, tea, and horticulture on DuBuy.com, improvements to Rwanda’s supply chain logistics including in rural areas, and access to digital tools to help businesses become more efficient and expand their reach to local, regional, and global markets.
DP World has already invested in world class port and logistics facilities in Kigali, demonstrating its strong belief in Rwanda’s future.
The decision to launch DuBuy.com in Rwanda follows the country’s consistent superior annual rating in the World Bank’s global “Ease of Doing Business” rankings and its commitment to international trade and investment.
