Professionals from different careers in Rwanda on Tuesday held a meeting at Kigali serena hotel to discuss and access the importance, patient http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/3rd-party.php challenges and why they should emphasize on signing the mutual regulation agreements with member states in the East African Community.
Mutual regulation agreements are signed by professionals from different bodies in the East African community to allow free operation of services in the member states.
Professionals noted that the main aim of signing these regulations is to ensure consumer protection, online http://deltaalphapihonorsociety.org/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader-skin.php fixing standard quality of services, http://codigoweb.co/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/akismet.php and to enhance the reputation of professionals in the regional market.
While assessing challenges Rwandan professionals face in the market, Benjamin Gasamagera the Rwandan PSF chairman said the main problem is the fact that professionals lack associations with regulations to govern them hence not being registered.
Innocent Safari the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Trade Industry and the EAC affairs said it would an advantage if for example engineers from Uganda and Kenya were free to come and bid for jobs in Rwanda if they were registered.
He urged Rwandan professionals to utilize the opportunities of registering their professions in order for them to be able to compete in the East African market
So far engineers, accountants, architects and veterinarians from Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya have been registered since 2011 while lawyers, land surveyors and pharmacists are in process of being registered.
Professionals from Tanzania and Burundi who are member states in the East African community have not yet started the process of registering their professions
