Kigali: President Kagame and Chairperson of the African Union today attends Mo Ibrahim Foundation Board Meeting in London, United Kingdom. The meeting brings together 50 participants to discuss a wide range of subjects pertaining to Africa's development including the institutional reforms underway within the African Union, the African Continental Free Trade Area, Africa's relations and partnership with different parts of the globe.

Chaired by Mo Ibrahim, the Board Meeting is also attended by Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland, former Presidents Joaquim Chissano of Mozambique, Festus Mogae of Botswana, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, Pedro Pires of Cabo Verde, and former Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, among other high-level guests.

"The key for both sides, Europe and Africa, is to move beyond the humanitarian mindset and instead focus the relationship on making Africa a priority destination for industrial investment, possibly working in a tripartite fashion. Why not have Europe, Africa, and China working together instead of having one worried about the other over Africa. You have Europe worried about China in Africa and then you have China worrying about Europe in Africa. Since Africa is a common denominator we could maybe meet around that and find some way." President Kagame attends Mo Ibrahim. (End)
