In his welcoming message for the DR Congo leader, Museveni stated thus; “It is my pleasure to welcome His Excellency Felix Tshisekedi, First Lady Denise and the entire Congolese delegation to Uganda. It is H.E. Tshisekedi’s second visit since he was elected. I need to rectify the imbalance by visiting Kinshasa.”

While commenting about why African countries need to trade more with each other instead of being bled dry by foreign countries, President Museveni noted thus;
“Africa is importing so much from other countries. We should stop that haemorrhage and increase our production. It will create more jobs for our youths, generate taxes for the government which in turn will provide services like roads, schools and hospitals.”

He added that “Our countries have signed a raft of bilateral agreements but importantly we have stressed the need to improve the trade relations between Uganda and DR Congo. I thank His Excellency Tshisekedi for honouring my invitation and wish him a fruitful stay in Uganda.”
