Kagame Woos Moroccan Investors to Rwanda

Rwanda’s President, order Paul Kagame has said there is need for regions to work together.

He noted that to manage the pace of change in the world today; there is need for more openness and exchange within the continent.

“This is about supporting each other to do the right things, pharmacy not covering up wrong things, more about as is often cynically alleged,” Kagame said.

The President was speaking at the ongoing 8th edition of MEDays Forum in Tanger, Morroco.

The President, who lauded Morocco’s increasing engagement around Africa, insisted that when trade or migration barriers are raised against developing countries, they should not respond in kind, but instead lower the barriers amongst themselves even further.

He welcomed investments in different sectors, and other kinds of productive collaborations.

“So to my brothers and sisters in Morocco, like Africans, Moroccans can visit Rwanda without applying for visas. In the years ahead, we are looking forward to welcome more Moroccan investors and business people to our country,” Kagame said.

Kagame, was during the forum, awarded with the MEDays Grand Prix for giving back faith to Rwandans and putting the country on the road to liberty and democracy.

“This award from the Amadeus Institute is especially meaningful to me personally, as well as all of us in Rwanda, because it celebrates the values of peace and democracy,” Kagame said.

“By recognizing the universal values at the heart of our journey of liberation and renewal, you have honored the Rwandan people’s struggle and resilience. For that, I sincerely thank you,” he added.

Kagame divulged that all the economic and social progress Rwanda is making ultimately rests on safety and security of people, as well as being accountable and inclusive and democratic governance.

The President said these principles have been the basis, not only for recovering Rwanda’s dignity as a nation, but also for making meaningful contributions, as a productive member of the international community.

He disclosed that, a key obstacle to more effective global cooperation, is the persistence of moral segregation, in the very structures, intended to bring people together.

“The right of poorer or darker countries, to chart our own course, is constantly questioned, if not overtly subverted,” he said, adding, “ Judgement is passed on the choices we make, but without serious analysis of the realities and/or context on the ground, much less consideration of the views of the citizens most concerned.”

The President said the quality of a system or wisdom is not the monopoly of any single country.

He cited the recent crises related to public health, migration, and the spread of all types of extremism, including terrorism, as the most obvious examples.

“There has not been necessarily adequate or coordinated world response, and this has created uncertainty, and even deep pessimism, about the future. But we can choose instead to work together, to build a fairer and more sustainable global order,” he noted.
