Unfortunately, in line with Uganda Government mourning guidance, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of the Republic of Uganda could not join us at the 12th Uganda-UK summit but recorded a message for the delegates, as follows:
“To the various British and international investors and buyers of our products in the UK who are gathering for the 12th Trade and Investment Convention in London this weekend, I’d like to offer my condolences, as I’ve already done for the family of the late Queen Elizabeth the Second, the government and the people of Britain and the Commonwealth for this huge loss to Britain, the Commonwealth and the world. I have not been able to come given the circumstances of the loss of a great friend of Uganda and the Commonwealth. However, thank you for the support and acceptance to buy in large quantities Ugandan products, to invest in infrastructure needs and consider our country as a partner in development. At an appropriate time, I will come over and meet you when times are better. I had planned to come as I indicated to you but situation now disallows. However, I’m with you in all respects, and I invite you to Uganda. I thank you”
At the summit, HE The president was to give an overview on government initiatives, incentives and strategies to attract investments and what Uganda has to offer to UK investors.
