President Paul Kagame on Friday arrived in Qatar for the 2019 Doha Forum that begins on Saturday morning.
On arrival at the airport, Kagame and his delegation were received by the Qatari Minister of Transport and Communication, Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti, according to a statement from the Office of the President.
At the forum, President Kagame will join the Emir of Qatar, His Highness Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani and other global leaders from the public and private sectors.
The forum will be held under the theme: “Reimagining Governance in a Multipolar World”.
Deliberations at the forum will centre around the need to reimagine global governance systems in a bid to adapt them to current circumstances where people, goods, and values are increasingly becoming transnational in nature.
As a leading thought platform, this year’s Doha Forum will discuss varied topics including trends and technology, trade and investment, human capital and inequality, security, cyber governance, and defense among others, according to a statement.
President Kagame is later on Saturday expected to hold a "spotlight conversation" with Ghida Fakhry a Lebanese-born broadcast journalist, and current affairs programme presenter with TRT World.
The Doha Forum was established in 2000 as a platform for global dialogue on critical global challenges.
The Forum brings together a distinguished group of leaders, thinkers and policy makers to redefine a global governance that addresses key needs.
