Don’t Give Us Aid, Trade With Us – Museveni Challenges European Union

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has challenged the European Union to embark on issues that empower and transform African Countries.

Speaking during the meeting with the European Union delegation in Uganda led by the EU Ambassador to Uganda H.E. Attilio Pacifici, Museveni noted that its trade that will help Ugandans not aid.

This meeting was part of their continuous engagements.

“I thank European Union countries for emphasising trade rather than aid when dealing with Uganda. This has seen our earnings from trade with the European Union triple the EU aid to Uganda in the past few years.” Museveni implored.

Museveni added that trade is complimentary because each participating party benefits.

“I appeal to the EU envoys to attract more European companies to invest in Uganda and take advantage of the ready market here.” He added.
