Discussions with Guterres revolved around productive cooperation with various UN agencies contributing to Rwanda’s progress. They also exchanged on the security situation in the region and on topics of continental and global impact.
Meanwhile, Kagame and Infantino discussed FIFA’s partnership with Rwanda in football development.
Infantino was in Rwanda early this year during the 73rd FIFA Congress at BK Arena in Kigali.
Among others, Kagame held talks with James Manyika, Senior Vice President of Technology and Society at Google for a conversation on furthering partnerships towards harnessing the power of technology, such as Artificial Intelligence, to accelerate economic growth.
Google entered agreements with Rwanda aimed at helping the country to accelerate digital transformation. This initiative is in line with Rwanda’s ambition to drive inclusive economic development leveraging technology.
The President also met with Under-Secretary-General United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator, Achim Steine for a discussion on the status of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the UNDP-Rwanda partnership, including the agency’s role in the country’s development.
