President Yoweri Museveni has hailed the Korean people for their discipline, hard work and the development of their human resource through education that has seen the nation rise to one of the richest countries in the world.

At a luncheon at State House Entebbe on Sunday, Museveni said Uganda can learn a lot from South Korea, and  there is a great potential for co-operation.

” We can buy from and sell to one another.  Uganda, with a population of 38 million people, that will be about 100 million by 2050, is, moreover, part of the huge African continent with a current population of 1.25 billion people.  By 2050, the population of the African continent will be 2.5 billion people.

 

 

 

 

“The potential for the two areas is huge.  I am glad you came to visit us so that we put more bricks on that potentially very lucrative co-operation, ” Museveni told Park Geun-hye, President of the Republic of Korea. She has made her historic visit to Uganda with a huge business delegation.

Earlier on Sunday President Park Geun-hye was given 21-gun salute before bilateral talk that concluded with signing of MoUs of cooperation in 10 different areas of foreign affairs, ICT, rural development, defence, healthcare, energy, agriculture, social welfare, community credit cooperatives, science and technology.

On Monday, Museveni  and Park will  launch the National Farmers Leadership Centre in Mpigi .

Park visited the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa before she traveled to Kampala. She will then visit Kenya.
