Kigali, 18 December 2017

President Kagame today opened the 15th National Umushyikirano meeting, bringing together Rwandans from across the country and the Diaspora. President Kagame also delivered the State of the Nation Address, where he outlined the country’s achievements and strategies laid by the Government to overcome challenges that have hindered development.

In his address, President Kagame called for a fundamental change in the education system, if the country is to achieve its quest to attain a knowledge-based economy.

“I believe that a revolution in the quality of education, at all levels, must be among our highest priorities. Human capital is the most important feature of a high-income economy.”

During the two-day Umushyikirano meeting, Rwandans gathered in Kigali and those following the proceedings from different platforms across the country will dialogue on issues affecting the country and devise way to overcome them.
