Addressing the forum, President Kagame said that Rwanda is creating an ecosystem that will benefit African entrepreneurs.
“Betting on the young people of our continent is a sure bet. Our continent is famous for its natural resources. But the value of our human capital, our people, exceeds all minerals in the continent. It isn’t about counting the number of human beings but rather looking at the potential they have and creating an environment for them to unleash their potential. We must be deliberate in our scale to create opportunities for African youth. Young people and everyone involved, we need to up our game. We owe it to ourselves, communities and continent to work hard and keep trying. Let’s not fail to try. Trust needs to be earned and nurtured," he said.
