Calling Museveni a longstanding China-Africa cooperation promoter and participator who has made important contributions to FOCAC development, Xi said China has always considered Uganda a key cooperation partner in Africa.

China stands ready to work with Uganda to strengthen exchanges of governance experience, especially in poverty reduction, implement key infrastructure projects, help Uganda accelerate industrialization, and enhance cooperation in areas such as people's livelihood, Xi said.

He said China supports Uganda in playing an even bigger role in maintaining regional peace and stability and is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with it in international and regional affairs.

Noting that the people of Africa will never forget their profound friendship with the Chinese, Museveni said Africa needs to strengthen cooperation with China in the process of African integration.

Uganda is willing to work with China on deepening cooperation in areas such as transportation, industrial parks, power supply, human resources, and on strengthening communication and collaboration in international affairs, Museveni added.

After the meeting, the two leaders witnessed the signing of bilateral cooperation documents.
