President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on Tuesday met and held discussions with Mr. Hassan Berkani, an investor from Morocco at State House, Entebbe.
Mr. Berkani is the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services of Casablanca-Settat, a professional public establishment with legal personality and financial autonomy under the supervision of the state.
During the meeting, President Museveni and Mr. Berkani centered their discussions on the exciting venture of adding value to Ugandan coffee, a move the former hailed as a significant stride towards breaking free from the shackles of raw-material dependency.
Highlighting Uganda’s solid foundation in infrastructure, education, and health, President Museveni underscored the fertile ground for private businesses to thrive.
On the other hand, Mr. Berkani pledged to export Ugandan coffee to Morocco and Europe after adding value for enhanced market competitiveness.
Expressing interest in Uganda’s diverse sectors such as infrastructure, tourism, agriculture, and industry, the Moroccan investor acknowledged the vast opportunities in Uganda.
