Alibaba recently extended its partnership with Rwanda while agreeing to import additional Rwandan products to China and launch a four-year e-commerce training program for students. The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in an updated memorandum of understanding (MoU) agreed to continue its membership in Alibaba’s Electronic World Trade Platform (eWTP) for another three years.

Rwanda was the first African nation to join the eWTP initiative, which aims to lower barriers to global trade for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) via e-commerce.

Alibaba Business School signed an agreement with RDB to start an undergraduate program that will train students in international business and cross-border e-commerce to support the development of skills relevant to growing the sector in the country, according to an Alibaba press release.

Twenty-two students are expected to join the incoming session starting this month. The course will be fully funded by Higher Education Council of Rwanda and Alibaba. Alibaba’s New Retail-powered supermarket chain, Freshippo, also signed an agreement with RDB, agreeing to import Rwandan chili to its 150 self-operated stores in China. (DS)
