President Paul Kagame,

According to Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, there are chances the continent will become globally better and produce better outcomes, now that Africa is focusing on cooperation and integration.

Kagame was speaking in Davos, Switzerland at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting at a dubbed session: Africa's Leadership in the New Global Context with South Africa's President, Cyril Ramaphosa and moderated by World Bank Group Chief Executive Officer Kristalina Georgieva.

The President said, the integration would be stronger.

"Africa is talking more and more about integration. There is a realization that if you look at countries individually, even when they think about global events, "he said.

"The (African) continent's regional exports are at 42 per cent while exports to the rest of the world are at 15 per cent, this shows you the potential of our continent. Each country complements the other so that we come out as winners, "he added.

The President added that the much-desired change and transformation will also be delivered by embracing technology and empowering young people.

This, he added, can be driven by the political will and the mindset to innovate and invest in the skills and infrastructure to build the digital economy.
