Introduction-  
India-Rwanda relations have marked cordiality. India is represented in rwanda through its consulate in kigali. Rwanada has been operating its high commission in new delhi since 1998 and appointed its first resident high commissioner in 2001. Both countries are members of the COMMONWEALTH NATIONS.
India is among the few countries in the world which voiced their concerns to alert the
world about the possibilty of genocide. As early as 1992 during the genocide of 1994 Indian soldier sacrificed their lives in the line of duty to maintain peace in rwanda.

High level visits:--
Indian minister of state for agriculture and food processing industries visited rwanda in 2011 to advance and strengthen sectoral cooperation. Minister of MSME led a business delegation to kigali to participate in technical and vocational education and training expo and symposium. India had also participatedin 28th meeting of the montreal protocol in kigali.

From Rwanda:-- Rwanada's president visited India four times during his tenure. In 2002 he recieved an honorary doctrate from vellore institute of technology. He also participated in the vibrant gujarati summit held in gandhinagar.

Current Relations and Bilateral Ties
India has increased trade relation with Rwanda. Both country signed eight agreements following delegation talks- the two countries signed agreement in the field of defence, trade, agriculture health and allied products and dairy --- India also has extended two line of credit of 100 million US dollars each one for development of industrial parksand kigali special economic zone and the other for three agriculture projects in Rwanda.
India will soon open a high commission in rwanda which will not only establish communication between the government of the two countries but also enable facilities for consular , passport and visa.

Conclusion
The postive role india can play to boost in Rwanda trade sector and in other feilds too. India FDI has been very low in past, as India now has increased investment in rwandait will benefits both of the country to a very long way. It is on very solid foundation of development .
