Last week . President Paul Kagame took part in a Heads of State dialogue on ‘Accelerating African Integration – Speaking One Voice’ at the two-day Africa Global Business Forum in Dubai.
The Global Business Forum series is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Dubai.
The forum was initiated by the Dubai Business Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2012. This year’s edition is themed “Next Generation Africa.”
Speaking at the forum, President Kagame said:
“Africa’s history prevented the continent from being as prosperous as it was capable of being. We want to see cooperation across the continent; countries working together, people coming together, investing and doing business. We are beginning to see progress. The more we speak with one voice as a continent, and face the world as one market, the faster we will attain the level of wealth our citizens aspire to. Integration is vital to our future.”
Other African leaders at the Forum include Presidents Edgar Lungu of Zambia, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, Danny Faure of Seychelles, and Ameenah Gurib-Fakim of Mauritius.
