In Politics On

President Paul Kagame yesterday evening received his counterpart of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Felix Tshisekedi who came to Rwanda to attend Africa CEO Forum.

Tshisekedi comes to Rwanda at a time when both countries are having a little vibrant 
relationships despite Kagame’s new year speech remarks where he claimed DRC under Kabila had joined Uganda to support anti-Rwanda Forces.

Both countries’ delegates last week signed agreement opening airspace that will see Rwand Air flying to Kinshasa and Congo Airways vice versa to go into effect mid-April 2019.

The forum is an opportunity for Tshisekedi to present his economic transformation agenda for a country whose economy mainly depends on mining.

Tshisekedi who took on in January 2019 will present policies in other areas of the country’s economy like agricultural infrastructure, measures to reduce unemployment 
and promoting trade and investment as well.

Togolese president, Gnasingbe who will also attend the forum is expected to present his country’s development agenda within the next five years.

Among other guests who have arrived to Kigali are; Ethiopian prime minister Sahle-Work Zewde and Ivory Cost Prime Minister, Amadou Gon Coulibaly.

The two-day forum that kicks off today at Kigali Convention Centre is the 7th of its kind and brings together around 1800 participants from 70 countries including four heads of states , 30 ministers and 700 CEOs.

Discussions will focus on regional integration including the implementation of the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA). It will be held under the theme: “Open Africa: From Continental Treaties to Business Realities”.

Different CEOs, heads of governments and potential investors are expected to benefit from a networking platform during the Forum. This will help them identify opportunities.
