For the first time since 2018, the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is returning to Rwanda. The week is a global movement connecting millions of people and takes place each November. This year, the GEW will be hosted by Jasiri to inspire entrepreneurs to unleash their innovation and contribute to our Country’s economic growth. Over the last ten years, GEW has been hosted in 180 countries with more than 10 million people participating in thousands of events.

As a high impact entrepreneurship development program, Jasiri’s partnership with GEW aims to further strengthen the creation of a collaborative entrepreneurship ecosystem in Rwanda. This builds on Jasiri’s mission to attack poverty by investing in, nurturing and empowering a generation of value-driven entrepreneurs who are creating homegrown solutions, impacting their communities and Africa at large.

“To empower entrepreneurs, we must create a collaborative ecosystem in which they can thrive. Jasiri is proud to host this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week in Kigali and we look forward to having the critical conversations with partners that foster home-grown solutions to better support entrepreneurs,” said Aline Kabanda, Country Director of Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy.

Jasiri nurtures and invests through introducing entrepreneurship development programs at the two stages of the entrepreneurial journey, from the pre-business phase to the accelerator phase of market-creating innovations. Through Jasiri’s programmes, aspiring entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to harness their innovations with sufficient support and investment.

“Rwanda is one of the best places to do business and an attractive destination for entrepreneurs. Global Entrepreneurship Week offers the chance to reflect on how to support entrepreneurs in granting guarantees, linking them to the regional and continental market and create a vibrant and collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem. We look forward to working with Jasiri to make the week a success and encourage everyone to attend events during the week,” - shared Richard Niwenshuti, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

This year, Global Entrepreneurship Week in Rwanda will be held under the theme, “Unleashing a Collaborative Ecosystem.” The theme aims to inspire communities to work together to create and share networks and markets to help rising startups thrive. It also seeks to celebrate the triumphs and learn from other entrepreneurial communities around the world.

The 2022 Global Entrepreneurship Week will feature events, discussions and panels hosted by Jasiri and partner organizations including Inkomoko, Carnegie Mellon University, Africa Leadership University, Business Professionals Network, Westerwelle Startup Haus Kigali, and the Segal Family Foundation. We are inviting anyone interested in being part of the collaborative ecosystem agenda to attend.

President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi underlined on Wednesday the crucial role played by Tanzania as one of the countries active in promoting security and stability in Africa.

These remarks came during the president's meeting with Tanzanian President Samia Hassan on the sidelines of the 27th session of the UN Climate Change Conference in Sharm El-Sheikh.

Presidential spokesman Bassam Rady stated that President El-Sisi said that Egypt was keen on strengthening ties with Tanzania on all levels. Egypt, the president said, gave importance to investing in vital sectors in Tanzania. The greatest example of these investments is the construction of the Tanzanian Julius Nyerere Dam. 

During the meeting, President Sisi underlined the close ties between Egypt and Tanzania. He welcomed the Tanzanian president in Egypt.

El-Sisi offered condolences to Tanzania for the victims of the plane that crashed into Lake Victoria while trying to land in Bukoba airport located in the northwest of Tanzania, added the spokesman.

The Tanzanian president, for her part, thanked President Sisi for his sincere brotherly feelings toward the victims of the plane crash.

She also hailed as deeply rooted the relations between Egypt and Tanzania, affirming her keenness on further strengthening ties with Egypt, according to the spokesman.

The Tanzanian president also said that there were prospects for developing cooperation between the two countries in numerous fields, particularly in the field of economy.

Hassan also extended thanks to Egypt for its distinguished contribution to development efforts in Tanzania, emphasising Egyptian efforts in the construction of  Tanzania's Julius Nyerere Dam, said Rady.

A consortium of Egyptian companies, namely Arab Contractors and El-Sewedy Electric, finished the construction of the main body of Julius Nyerere Dam located in Rufiji River in Tanzania in October.

The two leaders also discussed the latest developments in Africa. Both leaders agreed on the importance of integration between African countries, especially in the fields of economy and trade, the Presidential spokesman said.

Furthermore, the two leaders discussed efforts to combat terrorism, which is considered one of the major challenges facing Africa.

According to Rady, the talks broached the issue of the water of the Nile, with both sides agreeing to support the Nile Basin countries' path toward development. - Ahram Online

 

ENTEBBE, Uganda, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said on Monday that while the developed world must reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Africa should play its part in stopping the destruction of forests and wetlands, which has contributed to adverse climate change effects.

Museveni told reporters here at State House Entebbe, 40 km south of the Ugandan capital of Kampala, that African countries need to restore the wetlands and forests that have been destroyed.

The Ugandan leader has been critical of the destruction of wetlands and forests in the eastern African country to build industries and human settlements. The Ugandan government is embarking on the uphill task of evicting people and industries that have reclaimed swamps.

The president, who addressed a wide range of issues, also said the developed world should help Africa with resources to restore the destroyed environment.

Museveni's comment comes as world leaders and environmentalists meet at a UN conference on climate change held in the Egyptian coastal city of Sharm El-Sheikh. The meeting, also referred to as the 27th session of the Conference of Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, kicked off on Sunday as the world seeks possible solutions to climate change challenges. - Xinhua
