From 5th – 6th September 2016, the Government of Rwanda through Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and the Common Market for Eastern & Southern Africa (COMESA) hosted “The Global Africa Investment Summit” for the first time in Africa. The President of Rwanda – H.E. Paul Kagame opened the summit officially. The opening was also graced by the presence of H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda. This Summit has always been held in London, so Rwanda was its pioneer host in Africa at the brand new Kigali International Convention Centre.
MRB Attorneys did not only participate in the summit but also sponsored the welcome “Cocktail Party” held on the evening of the 4th September at the Marriott Hotel, Kigali. MRB was represented by Athanase Rutabingwa – Partner. The RDB was appreciative of MRB’s support and the parties look forward to collaborate on other projects. The Summit is a great networking opportunity and provided an opportunity to many businesses and stakeholders to connect and push forward the African Development agenda.
