Madame Chairperson of the Executive Council,
Distinguished Representatives of the Regional Economic Communities and the Organs of the Union,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
May I first of all, on behalf of the African Union Commission, express to the Government and the people of Rwanda our deep gratitude for the excellent organisation of our meeting.
I am touched by the innumerable expressions of hospitality shown to my colleagues and me since our arrival in Kigali.
