New Delhi, March 23 (IANS) The Kigali Global Dialogue (KGD) will take place at the Marriott Hotel in Kigali, Rwanda, from July 3 to 5.
The event will be hosted by the Centre for New Economic Diplomacy, Observer Research Foundation (ORF), in partnership with the Rwanda Convention Bureau, Republic of Rwanda.
The two-day KGD will serve as an annual Rwanda-based platform where established and emerging actors will convene to discuss global conversation on contemporary issues of development and growth.
The discussions will focus on climate change and sustainability, technological transformation of society and public health and human capital, while situating gender equality at their core.
“Indeed, Africa will be a crucible where new and equitable social contracts and development paradigms will be discovered and shared with all,” said ORF President Samir Saran.
“The opportunity to engage in these critical conversations in Kigali with leaders and thinkers from around the world is invaluable to the global effort. We are delighted to partner with the Rwanda Convention Bureau to create an arena that catalyses new thinking and supports collective action,” he added.
