President Yoweri Museveni has lifted the suspension on the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), a consortium of donor for good governance programs in Uganda.

Museveni announced this during a meeting with investors from Denmark who expressed interest to invest in Uganda.

Museveni said DGF whose activities were suspended last year, will resume operations on a condition that Government is represented in its decision-making structures.

His decision came from an appeal by Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Hon. Flemming Miller Mortensen and the Danish Ambassador H.E Nicolaj A. Hejberg Petersen who said that the project has only six months left to elapse.

After answering their prayer, Museveni then asked them to come and invest in Uganda assuring them of the available markets of Uganda, East African, Africa, US and China, among others. He noted that there is great market potential to purchase their products.

He saluted Denmark for commercializing milk in Uganda.

He asked the visiting Minister to give Uganda support in the area of irrigation in order to stabilise agriculture.
President Museveni and his guests also discussed issues on cooperation in the areas of Agriculture and Water, among others.

Hon. Mortensen told the President that Denmark will establish new programs in Uganda in the areas of Human rights, Civic Education and Accountability. He said that Denmark has a lot of focus on the relationship with Uganda.

The Minister said that Denmark will be a good partner to Uganda and that they will continue to support development projects in Uganda for better life. an accessible web community
