Coffee Hour with Ambassador of Rwanda

April 12, 2013


TICAD V NGO Contact Group, TICAD V Student Project, and The World Bank Tokyo Office jointly organize

  • TICAD V (5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development) will be held on 1-3 June as a forum for summit-level policy dialogue between African leaders and development partners. The World Bank is one of the co-organizers.

    TICAD V NGO Contact Group, TICAD V Student Project, and the World Bank Tokyo Office take advantage of this opportunity to jointly organize "Coffee Hour with African Ambassadors", a series of informal lecture and discussion events with Ambassadors, Japanese NGO experts/researchers, African postgraduates studying in Japan and Japanese youth representatives.

    The third session will be held on Rwanda. H.E. Ambassador Murigande will kindly introduce social/economic structure and investment opportunities in Rwanda.

    We also invite Mr. Shigetsugu Komine and Ms. Naoko Seto (See Program). We are hoping that this event would be of any help to enhance understanding about Rwanda. Please join and learn more about Africa with us.
