Uganda has received a fleet of 70 SUVs from the Chinese government as gifts. During the ceremony to handover the vehicles, the Chinese ambassador to Uganda, Zheng Zhuqiang was present. The state minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Sam Kutesa also graced the ceremony with his presence.

Sam Kutesa spoke during the ceremony and said Uganda values historic, progressive, excellent bilateral relations with the People’s Republic of China. He said the country remains committed to deepening them further in the political, security, economic, social, cultural, and scientific fields.

He further applauded China for the support of Uganda in relation to hosting the third G77 summit. This, however, had to be postponed to a later date due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Chinese ambassador reaffirmed his government’s cooperation and partnership with Uganda. He noted that this donation of vehicles and accreditation equipment is a sign of China’s goodwill and support to the country.

The Minister for Works and Transport, Gen. Katumba Wamala also thanked the Chinese government for the gift. He pledged to ensure efficient maintenance and management of these 70 SUVs that are a significant addition to the government fleet.

He also applauded the outgoing Chinese ambassador for his effective leadership sighting a number of initiatives and projects in the transport sector. Some of these projects include the completion of the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway highway.

In addition to that, is the ongoing expansion of the Entebbe International Airport, among other projects.
