The report launch will take place on the 11th March – details of the venue and time are available for ITB participants in the main programme – and is organized b the UN’s World Tourism Organization, a sign in how high an esteem Rosette is held in international circles. Said Rosette on the eve of her departure to Berlin / Germany: ‘It is a humbling honour and great opportunity to showcase what Rwanda has achieved in empowering women and the potential it has to be a leading tourism destination’.
