Rwanda will become the first African country to host the Global Engineering Conference (GECO) and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) Executive Council Annual Meeting.

The Meetings are scheduled for October 15 to 18, 2024, at the Kigali Convention Center in Kigali City.

During the launch of the event meeting, Steven Sabiti, the Executive Secretary of the Institution of Engineers Rwanda (IER) said the Global Engineering Conference 2024 (GECO2024) will be a great platform for engineers from across the world to share knowledge and ideas, while building collaborative efforts to address issues of global concern.

Speaking at the launch event, Eng. Gentil Kangaho, Chairman and President of the Institution of Engineers Rwanda, said that Rwanda hosting the GECO2024 will be a great moment for the country and the continent at large, pointing out that it will be an opportunity to discuss a wide array of pertinent topics, calling on all stakeholders to be involved.

Alphonse Rukaburandekwe, Director General of the Rwanda Housing Authority, said that Rwanda hosting the Global Engineering Conference 2024 will be a timely occasion, coming at a time when the country is marking 30 years after the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, recognizing the role engineers have played in the rebuilding of the country.

“I was just looking back at the past 30 years. As you know, this event also goes with the celebration of 30 years of Liberation. Engineers have been the backbone of the development of Rwanda.”

 “As my colleague Sabiti Steven said, there’s no way you can develop a nation without engineers. I’ll take this opportunity to thank our engineers who continue to support the development of our country,” the Director General of Rwanda Housing Authority added.

The GECO2024 will bring together more than 1,000 participants from across the globe, providing an unparalleled platform for engaging with the engineering community, including professionals, academics, industry leaders, policymakers, and students from Rwanda, Africa and beyond.
