President Kagame meets with business community in Hong Kong

Hong Kong 10 September 2012

President Kagame was today hosted to a luncheon by members of the business community in Hong Kong to discuss the multiple business opportunities Rwanda has to offer. Introducing President Kagame, Marc Holtzman who also sits on the board of directors of the Bank of Kigali referred to Rwanda as a miracle story and described President Kagame as “a man with the vision that transformed Rwanda.”

Holtzman explained that he first learned of Rwanda’s progress when President Kagame addressed the University of Denver during his time as President of the University in 2004. It is then that his vision of Rwanda changed from a nation marked by genocide to one of admirable socio-economic transformation.

President Kagame began his address by inviting all present to be part of Rwanda's journey. “I invite you to be part of the revival of not only Rwanda but Africa. We want to look at change in the general context of the East African Community to which we belong and of Africa,” President Kagame said.

In response to a question on personal motivation, President Kagame explained how his youth had shaped him: “I was a refugee for twenty seven years and there is no better school than the life we lived and the experience we had...the difference our generation made was that we not only thought about what this situation meant, we acted.”
