President Paul Kagame has told members of the Young Presidents Organisation (YPO) that the continued influx of foreign investors into the country is because of working hard for progress.
On Thursday Kagame met 80 members of YPO who are in the country as part of ‘Rwanda Life Changing Experience trip’.
Drawn from 17 countries, the delegation has been in the country for the past week, according to Thomas Krulis – YPO’s current coordinator.
YPO is the largest global platform for chief executives. Its members harness the knowledge, influence and trust of the World’s most influential and innovative business leaders to inspire business, personal, family and community impact.
The organization empowers more than 25,000 members in more than 130 countries, diversified among industries and types of businesses.
Its member-run companies employ 16 million people with $6 trillion in annual revenues.
“When we asked the President on how YPO members can invest in Rwanda, he said first come here. Come and see what is going on, invest in your head, invest in your heart.
There are lots of opportunities in Rwanda. We will help you start business and we will help you open up for East Africa as well,” Kruli told KT Press.
The President told the delegation which included spouses and their children that Rwanda has left its past and embarked on living a new dignified life.
