ChimpReports, East Africa’s leading online news site, has signed a partnership with Leo Africa Institute ahead of LeO Africa Economic Forum set for July 7, 2017.
The collaborative partnership was signed by Ivan Rugambwa and Kwezi Tabaro on behalf of LeO Africa while Giles Muhame represented ChimpReports.
Speaking on behalf of the Institute, Rugambwa thanked ChimpReport’s willingness to partner with Leo Africa for the Economic Forum.
“Partnerships like these are an opportunity for us to harness and reinforce each other’s efforts towards bettering our societies and contributing to the Africa we want,” said Rugambwa.
Since 2013, the Institute has annually convened the LeO Africa Economic Forum in Kampala to discuss vital Economic Trends driving change in Africa, with the aim of building multi-sectoral consensus on how to harness these to build transformative economies that create jobs and bridge income inequality.
Rugambwa said this year’s Forum will particularly seek to explore East Africa’s entrepreneurial promise, by assessing the impact and potential of disruptive innovations to make our economies more inclusive and job creating.
On his part, Muhame expressed delight at forming a partnership with one of Uganda’s most prominent institutes and pledged support to its works.
“Over the past two years, we have been learning more about our respective organizations’ strengths, and to identify priorities for a partnership that will contribute to making Africa a better place,” said Muhame.
“We are excited about the possibilities offered by working closely with LeO Africa Institute,” said Muhame.
“Our mission is to help develop an enlightened society by sharing and brainstorming transformative ideas with it. That can only be done by partnering with selected, high quality collaborators such as LeO Africa Economic Forum.”
ChimpReports will provide extensive coverage of the event through interviews, features and live video feeds.
