India, Uganda agreed to cooperate in space programme and atomic energy
23 February 2017 Current Affairs: India and Uganda on 22 February 2017 agreed to cooperate in various fields like the space programme, vocational training and peaceful use of atomic energy. The agreements were announced in a joint press conference by the Vice President Hamid Ansari and Ugandan President Yoweri Kauta Museveni in State House at Entebbe, the official residence of President.

VP Ansari was in Uganda during the second leg of 2-nation of his visit to East Africa, namely Rwanda and Uganda. He was in Rwanda from 19 February to 21 February 2017 and in Uganda from 21 February to 23 February 2017.

Besides these agreements, the Vice President held talks with President Yoweri Museveni at the State House. During this meet, the two leaders reviewed the entire gamut of bilateral cooperation. They also committed to work together in trade, investment, agriculture, defence cooperation and IT among others.

In addition, President Museveni called Indian companies to manufacture automobiles locally, which would help the country in discouraging import of cars. It seems that this call for assembling and manufacturing vehicles locally in Uganda would provide a new market to Indian manufacturers.

Earlier in the day, Vice President Hamid Ansari met his counterpart Edward Ssekandi at the Vice Presidents Secretariat.
