“We salute the far sighted Chinese leaders who opened up the economy of China since 1978. With this enhanced capacity, the Chinese government and Chinese companies have not wasted time in coming to the support of Africa, Uganda included,” he said.

He further noted that the relationship between China and Uganda is not only a historical one but also a mutually beneficial relationship because Uganda also greatly contributes to the economy of China by importing from the Asian economic powerhouse massively.
