CANKUZO October 5th (ABP) – The Minister of Trade, Transport, Industry and Tourism, Mrs. Capitoline Niyonizigiye, along with executives from different directorates within that ministry held on Monday October 4, 2021, a meeting at the location of young entrepreneurs and economic operators in Cankuzo province, the ABP found on the spot.
The Minister said that the State is concerned about the implementation of the National Development Project (PND) 2018-2027.
She added that it will be successful after increasing production to the point of even having the excess to export.
She took the opportunity to call on them to create cooperatives in order to increase production and have access to credit within the investment bank for young people (BIJE).
According to Minister Niyonizigiye, young people will be supported in their development projects. With this in mind, these young people can report problems they are having in their affairs to the ministry for a solution, because, she said, this is part of her concerns. She reminded them to take by heart the texts and laws governing their affairs.
In his opening remarks, the governor of Cankuzo province, Boniface Banyiyezako indicated that peace and security are a reality.
However, he lamented that the lack of paved roads is one of the barriers that hinder the development of the province, especially in terms of trade, because, he explained, the breakdown of automobiles at the time of transporting goods increases the costs of transport.
Regarding electricity, the provincial governor asked that many centers be supplied with electricity to facilitate development work for young people.
When asked about the development of places that can serve as tourist sites in Cankuzo province, he replied that they have already been identified and that the rest is the validation of priorities.
Another problem that was raised during this meeting is linked to the enormous expenditure of young people in cooperatives in the search for the various documents within the BIJE given their residence.
Young entrepreneurs also noted the problem of the lack of a market for selling their processed products.
To all those different questions, Minister Niyonizigiye promised that they will be transmitted to the other ministries concerned.
Finally, she asked the administration to closely follow the development of cooperatives in the province.
