By meeting with American actor Terrence Dashon Howard and his wife Mira Pak, who are in Uganda to learn more about the country’s tourism potential and technological investment options, President Yoweri Kaguta has said that he supports the New Hydrogen Technology Initiative.
“We heartily welcome you to Uganda. The president of Uganda, Museveni, remarked, “We are prepared to work with you.
The pair made President Museveni a courtesy visit at State Lodge Nakasero, where they engaged in a lighthearted conversation.
The couple will travel to several regions of the nation to take in the natural beauty and the incredible tourist potential of Uganda, among other things.
Additionally, Mr. Terrence is searching for tech-related investment opportunities. He claims that he wants to establish the first facility of its sort in Africa in Uganda using New Hydrogen technology.
The chemical hydrogen is employed in many processes, including as the creation of ammonia, oil refining, and energy.
According to Mr. Terrence Howard, a scientist and technologist, he has been acting in movies while also working as a professional, particularly in the field of research.
“We appreciate you letting us meet you. In Uganda, I intend to create a new hydrogen technology. According to Mr. Terrence, the project’s primary goal would be to protect the nation’s technological sovereignty.
He praised President Museveni and the administration for their astute and admirable leadership, which has aided the nation in making progress.
