Rwandan Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Rosemary Museminali will end her visit to Australia today, having met Australian counterpart Stephen Smith and visited Melbourne and Sydney on her five-day visit. Australia's diplomatic relationship with Rwanda began in 2006 and much of the early dealings were around development. However, Smith says the minister's visit will unfold into trade matters as well. "Mrs Museminali's visit provides an opportunity to build private sector, government and institutional links between Australia and Rwanda, and explore further potential for bilateral trade and investment, particularly in the agricultural and minerals resources industries," he indicated. Smith and Museminali also discussed security issues in the African region regarding the Congo, Somalia, Sudan and Zimbabwe. Australia pledged an additional $5.5 million to support civilians displaced to Rwanda by ongoing Congolese conflict.
