The Indian government has re-affirmed its commitment to ensuring better lives for several communities in Uganda through economic and social support.


Speaking during a courtesy visit to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga at parliament recently, India’s high commissioner to Uganda Dr. Ramesh Chandra said the Indian government was committed to investing in crucial sectors to boost Uganda’s economy.

“Plans are underway to step-up a food processing plant that will also double as a training center for Ugandans,” said Ramesh

Dr. Ramesh also assured that the recently elected Indian government and parliament would work together with Uganda to ensure peace in the East African community as a region.

“Uganda has a significant role to play in stabilizing its neighbors in Kenya, Somalia, south Sudan and Djibouti,” he stated.

He assured that the historical relations between Uganda and India would be enriched with better economic ties.

In her remarks, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga applauded India for its continued support to Ugandan parliament as she recalled the close historical political ties between Uganda and India.

“We need to enhance cooperation and contact between members and staff of the two parliaments, the Indian Bureau of Parliamentary studies can also partner with the institute of parliamentary studies of Uganda to build its capacity in conducting trainings,” Proposed Kadaga.

She expressed gratitude to the government of India for the vocational training center and food processing plant which she said will help to empower millions of Ugandans with much needed vocation skills.

During the 45 minute meeting between the two leaders, a number of bilateral, regional and multilateral issues to both countries were discussed.

Dr. Ramesha also delivered to Kadaga a letter from Indian parliament Speaker Sumitra Mahajan. Ramesh hailed Uganda’s parliament for persevering its rich historical past following his tour of the parliament corridors where portraits for past leaders are displayed.
