To speed up this trend, we expect to see more frequent contact between our respective business communities, and other institutions, going forward. For our part, it is essential to maintain a conducive and predictable overall governance environment, with equal rights and opportunities for all players. Our focus should be on deriving practical results from our cooperation efforts, with clear mutual benefit. Doing so would indeed represent an important contribution to building an equitable international order and a brighter future for all our peoples.” President Kagame remarks at the first-ever Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi, Russia.
