President Paul Kagame yesterday met and interacted with a delegation of 22 members of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs at Village Urugwiro who are in Rwanda for a five-day visit.

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization that provides insight and influences the public discourse on critical global issues.

The Council was formed on February 20, 1922. Originally named The Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, the organization was established as a neutral forum for discussing foreign affairs during a period of isolationism in the United States after World War I.

The delegation that arrived in Rwanda from Ethiopia held talks with Kagame yesterday revolving around Rwanda’s politics in the 25 years journey, economy and citizens’ wellbeing.

The State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Amb. Olivier Nduhungirehe said that guests have a lot of things to learn from Rwanda including the country’s 25 years transformational journey.

He further stated that the delegation was thirsty to learn from Rwanda’s resilience over the past 25 years.

“Many foreigners still doubt about Rwanda’s transformational journey looking at the current progress and the situation in 1994. They hailed a lot concerning implemented economic policy, Rwanda’s Governance and culture among priorities promoting Rwandans unity,” he said.

Before meeting with Kagame, the delegation held talks with other officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health.

The head of the delegation said that they had extraordinary discussions with the President of Rwanda, what lessons the Unites States might be able to learn from Rwanda about how the society is brought together and what other states might do to continue to be a great good partner of Rwanda.
