Our similarities are our strength, asserts Museveni.

Given the historical similarities and ancient linkages, East African countries are able to achieve maximum unity in the form of political federation and economic integration, Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has said.

Museveni was speaking at the Tanzania-Uganda Oil and Gas Symposium 2021 in Dar es Salaam.

“Two levels of integration for East Africa – political and economic – as well as economic integration for all of Africa, would create a bloc in which we can negotiate durable market access internationally with the US, China, EU, Russia, India, Japan, Indonesia, ” Museveni said adding that , “Although on the other side we have different historical backgrounds with other African countries, it is possible and desirable to form a common market and interact economically. It will be a business and market of 1.4 billion people today that will grow to 2.5 billion by 2050.”
