The group from Cuba was led by the Hon. Bruno Rodriguez, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and President Yoweri Museveni met with them.
They talked on issues involving enhancing bilateral ties between the two nations.
Along with other people, the Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister was accompanied by H.E. Tania Perez Xiques, the country’s ambassador to Uganda.
Hon. Henry Okello Oryem, Minister of State for International Affairs, also attended the meeting at the President’s rural residence in the Ntungamo area.
The necessity for investment in fields such as science, manufacturing, and barter commerce was mentioned by President Museveni.
“There are good areas of business partnership,” he said, citing the pathogenic industry’s role in the production of vaccines that can win over Ugandan, East African, and African consumers.
“Barter commerce with the private sector or dealing directly with the Government would also be excellent,” he continued.
He claimed that Cuba could trade goods like medications for agricultural items like maize, powdered milk, and beans grown by Ugandan farmers.
“Easy commerce,” the president referred to it.
Cuba’s foreign minister thanked President Museveni for his support of the African Union (AU) and the unity between Cuba and Africa.
He explained to the President that manufacturing, together with pharmaceuticals, foreign tourism, and industry, are key components of Cuba’s thriving economy.
