Other agreements covered separate projects related to the grant of  Euro 1.5 million  to promote sports and talent development.

Earlier Thursday, Rwandan minister of Finance and Economic Planning,  Uzziel Ndagijimana also signed a Euro 60 million financing agreement with Rémy Rioux the Director-General of French Agency for Development (AFD).
