The Chinese Ambassador to Uganda, H.E. Zheng Zhugiang, on Monday paid a courtesy call on Operation Wealth Creation [OWC] Chief Coordinator, Gen Saleh at Garuga.

According to OWC Communications Director, Sarah Kagingo, Gen Saleh and the ambassador discussed matters of mutual benefit to both Uganda and China.

“The General engaged his guest on technology transfer from China to Uganda for value addition, penetration of Ugandan products (coffee etc) to the Chinese market,” Kagingo said.

The Chinese embassy pledged to reinforce OWC programme and partner with Uganda on technology transfer for value addition.

“They also discussed access to affordable finance and the need for an agriculture bank,” Kagingo added.

The ambassador said his country will do whatever it takes to help Uganda’s efforts to attain middle income status and will always be available to help Uganda.

“We want to help this country to transform from subsistence to commercial agriculture.” noted Mr. Zhugiang, adding that the biggest percentage of the population is employed in agriculture directly and indirectly, it is wise that the sector is supported.

“Operation Wealth Creation is working to raise household incomes of the people and I hope this support will also come in handy to help in the running of the activities.”

He said China will continue cooperating with Uganda in a number of programs including commercialisation of agriculture.

The Chinese Ambassador also mentioned industry, medicine, education, security and human resource development as key sectors that his country will invest in as part of the cooperation between the two countries.

Operation Wealth Creation was started in 2013 to revitalise government agencies to execute their mandates in order to transform the lives of 68% of households in the country who are engaged in subsistence agriculture by converting them into commercial farmers.

OWC has increased communication between the public sector, private sector, farmers, development partners and the civil society towards a cohesive approach to agriculture and development of Uganda as a whole.

According to the envoy, China is willing to share experiences and technologies in agricultural development with Uganda to “add value and create more jobs.”
