President Paul Kagame of Rwanda officially launched the center at an international conference in Kigali. The conference focused on how Africa could achieve the United Nations’ SDGs by 2030.
President Paul Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the ongoing 28th African Union Summit.
President Paul Kagame has called on African countries to take advantage of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework to bridge the gap between the current challenges and their mission to advance by doing the right things in the right way.
