(eTN) - Rosette Rugamba, former head of ORTPN (Rwanda's Office of Tourism and National Parks) and then Deputy CEO at the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) for Tourism and Conservation, will return to her "winning site" this week as an invited panelist, when the global report on "Women in Tourism" is being formally launched by the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). After leading Rwanda’s tourism delegation to three consecutive "Best Exhibitor" trophies at the ITB in Berlin, Rosette retired from RDB a year ago to go into private business and is now CEO of "Songa Africa," besides making apparent waves across women executive organizations on the continent.

The report launch will take place on March 11 – details of the venue and time are available for ITB participants in the main program – and is organized by the UN’s World Tourism Organization, a sign as to 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 honor and great opportunity to showcase what Rwanda has achieved in empowering women and the potential it has to be a leading tourism destination."
