According to Rwanda's President Paul Cagame, there is a chance that the continent will become more global and deliver better results now that Africa focuses on cooperation and integration.
Kagame talks in Davos, Switzerland, at the annual World Economic Forum meeting entitled: Leadership of Africa in the New Global Context with South Africa President Kiril Ramaphos and moderated by World Bank Executive Director Kristalina Georgieva.

The president said integration will show that individual countries will emerge stronger than various commitments, including trade.
"Africa is talking more and more about integration. There is an understanding that if you look at countries individually, even the big countries are small when you think of global events, "he said.
The regional export of the (African) continent is 42%, while exports to the rest of the world are 15%, which shows the potential of our continent. Each party complements the other to go out as winners, "he added.
The chairman added that the desired change and transformation would be achieved through the adoption of technology and the empowerment of young people.
This, he added, may be due to political will and attitude to innovation as well as investment in skills and infrastructure to build the digital economy.
