President Museveni heads to China for the China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo.
President of the Republic of Uganda H.E Yoweri Museveni has set off to China for the China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo,a platform that will further boost trade and economic ties between the two sides.
The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) on Wednesday hailed the launch of this activation with the inaugural expo scheduled for June 27-29 in central China’s Hunan Province.
The bi-annual expo has been established under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation as a new mechanism for economic and trade cooperation between China and African countries.
UNECA Southern Africa Office director Said Adejumobi has said that the expo will provide African countries with an opportunity to explore trade and economic opportunities in the vast Chinese market.
“It’s an opportunity to expose the goods and services. It’s an opportunity to broker networks, form partnerships and to really be able to learn lessons from the Chinese experiment,” Adejumobi said.
