Africa: Europe Should Take Interest in Africa - Museveni

President Museveni has asked ambassadors, in France, to market Africa to Europe. "Africa's purchasing power is now at $8 trillion with a population of 1.2 billion. Remind Europeans that Africa is a growing market and they should, therefore, take interest in it," Mr Museveni said. The president made these remarks at the start of a two-day visit to France, on which he has been accompanied by Education minister, Janet Museveni, also his wife. The two were received by French ambassador to Uganda, Ms Sophie Makame, Uganda's Minister of State for International Affairs, Mr Okello Oryem and Uganda's Ambassador to France, Ms. Nimisha Madhvani. A host of other African ambassadors accredited to France representing Kenya, Ghana, Sudan, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Algeria, the Central African Republic, Gambia, Tanzania, Niger and Togo, among others were present when Mr Museveni touched down at Le Bourget Airport. Museveni also told the ambassadors that East Africa is discussing a policy "where investors would only sell their products if they are manufacturing in the region".
