Dear cooperative Chairpersons and members, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great honour for me to join all of you today, distinguished guests, to give an opening address for this "International Conference on Cooperative and Development".
What brings all of us together here today, is our common belief in the importance of leveraging the Cooperatives Movement as a driver of Development.
Ladies and gentlemen,
And now, what's next?
I wish you all fruitful discussions.
I thank you, MURAKOZE.
