President Paul Kagame Wednesday morning took part in a high-level round table discussion on the ‘State Fragility, Growth and Development' at the ongoing Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London.  

The discussion focused on encouraging and promoting inclusive economic growth in fragile and conflict situations as a key priority for global security and international development.

The roundtable, that brought together Heads of Government and top business leaders from the Commonwealth group of nations, was chaired by former United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron, the Chair of the Commission of State Fragility, Growth and Development.

After the roundtable discussion, President Kagame was scheduled to attend the 'Africa Leaders Roundtable', which will assess Africa’s growth story with a special focus on intra-African trade and attracting investment into Africa.

The Africa Leaders roundtable will be attended by Heads of State and Government from across the African continent and will be chaired by Lord Marland, Chairman of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, and Richard Etemesi, the Vice Chairman of Standard Chartered.
