Uganda, China Sign Three Pacts As Museveni Meets Jinping

President Yoweri Museveni has held a bilateral discussion with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, with both leaders witnessing the signing of three agreements between their countries. 

The three pacts are; an agreement on economic and technical cooperation, a memorandum of understanding on cooperation within the framework of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative and finally an agreement on emergency humanitarian assistance. 

The first agreement is worth 200 million Yuan, while the third is 70 million Yuan. The second agreement, on the Silk Road Initiative, will benefit from the $60 billion that President Jingping announced during the recent Summit of the Forum of China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC). 

In his remarks, President Museveni thanked President Jinping for focusing on the strategic alliance between Africa and China since 1949.
