The ministry developed the portal through funding of 150,000 U.S. dollars secured from TradeMark East Africa.
The trade portal comprises of two interlinked platforms; a front-end login portal where stake holders of Rwanda Agriculture Livestock Inspection and Certification Services (RALIS) will access services ranging from information on Sanitary requirements, international and Rwanda trade regulations, and features to access and request for services, according to officials.
The second platform is a Management Information System to be used by RALIS management and staff to process requests for services.
According to ministry officials, the linkages within the system will enhance inter-government agency coordination to enhance service delivery.
The Management Information System has been integrated to the Rwanda Electronic Single Window, enabling information sharing between Rwanda Revenue Authority and the Ministry of Agriculture.
It will also be integrated with financial systems such as the national payment gateway and banking systems. Enditem
