"The way forward depends on sidestepping" Says President Kagame at Davos World Economic Forum

President Paul Kagame at Davos World Economic Forum

This Friday, Climate change and poverty took center stage at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where political and financial leaders began campaigning in earnest for twin global accords aimed at cooling the planet and easing the suffering of multitudes.

"We are not making a choice between environmental protection and economic development," President Kagame said. "We are rather looking at how we combine both."
"Future generations will judge us harshly if we fail," the UN secretary said

Rwanda’s delegation, led by President Kagame, includes the Minister for Finance and Economic Planning, Amb. Claver Gatete, the Minister for Agriculture and Animal Resources, Geraldine Mukeshimana, Rwanda Development Board chief executive Francis Gatare, and the Minister for ICT and Youth Jean Philbert Nsengimana.

It is expected that this forum will serve as a platform for the Rwandan delegation to discuss business and investments in Rwanda with world business leaders. "Rwanda’s participation serves as an opportunity to share Rwanda’s story and the steps taken to sustain an attractive business environment," Amb. Gatete told the media
