President Kagame to Inaugurate MWC Kigali 2023, Africa’s Pinnacle Connectivity Event

MWC Kigali 2023, led by President Kagame, drives Africa’s digital transformation and socio-economic development goals.

The GSMA has announced that His Excellency Paul Kagame, the President of the Republic of Rwanda, will formally open MWC Kigali on 17 October at the Kigali Convention Centre, Kigali, Rwanda.

It is a great honour for His Excellency Paul Kagame to open MWC Kigali 2023; his participation is a mark of how Africa’s digital transformation journey is gaining momentum and empowering communities, government and businesses. As 4G moves forward and 5G emerges, frontier technologies offer huge potential and fintech continues to connect millions within the formal economy for the first time. I am looking forward to three days of debate and inspiration with international industry leaders and high-level African policymakers.
