China to work with Uganda in area of poverty reduction – President XI

China stands ready to work with Uganda to strengthen exchanges of governance experience, especially in poverty reduction, President Xi Jinping said on Thursday.

At a meeting with President Yoweri Museveni after the 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) which held from Sept. 3 to Sept. 4, Xi said China will implement key infrastructure projects in Uganda.

Xi said China will help Uganda accelerate industrialization, and enhance cooperation in areas such as people’s livelihood.
Calling Museveni a longstanding China-Africa cooperation promoter and participator who has made important contributions to FOCAC development, Xi said China has always considered Uganda a key cooperation partner in Africa.

He said China supports Uganda in playing an even bigger role in maintaining regional peace and stability and is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with it in international and regional affairs.

Noting that the people of Africa will never forget their profound friendship with the Chinese, Museveni said Africa needs to strengthen cooperation with China in the process of African integration.

Museveni said Uganda thanks China for its assistance in Uganda’s social and economic development, especially in infrastructure construction, which has remarkably raised the country’s economic competitiveness.

Museveni assured that Uganda was willing to work with China on deepening cooperation in areas such as transportation, industrial parks, power supply, human resources, and on strengthening communication and collaboration in international affairs.
After the meeting, the two leaders witnessed the signing of bilateral cooperation documents.
