THE minister for the Presidency, Kirunda Kivejinja, has commended the Indian investors for continuing to invest in Uganda, reports James Bakunzi.
This, he said, has created employment opportunities for many Ugandans.
â€œThe Indian community has been significant in Ugandaâ€™s economy by creating entrepreneurship and hence the creation of employment to many Ugandans,â€ Kivejinja said.
He was last week speaking as the chief guest during Indiaâ€™s National Day celebrations held at the High Commissioners residence in Kololo in Kampala.
Kivejinja said Uganda was transforming into an industrial state and it needed good relationship with other countries.
â€œWe would like our exporters to continue exporting more commodities to India and this will contribute to our efforts to modernise our country,â€ he said.
Kivejinja said Ugandaâ€™s relationship with India dates back to the colonial days.
He said the two countries had continued to enjoy cordial relationship.
The Indiaan High Commissioner, Deepak Ray, said since their independence, India had continued to have modest strides in building its economy.
He pledged to further strengthen the relations with Uganda.
