President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has called upon European Union (EU) to help rebuilt or boast Uganda’s economy.

Museveni has been sharing some thoughts on his twitter account following his meeting with the EU diplomats in Kololo, Uganda who were celebrating 60 years of the EU existence.

“If economy grows, costs go down, private investors are attracted and the future becomes easy to handle. The EU can help on this front,” Museveni said.

Museveni added that economic growth takes the first priority over human rights.

“It’s okay to talk of human and other rights but growth of the economy should be the first to emphasize,” Museveni added in his tweet.

He further thanked the EU for supporting the construction of roads but urged it to do more to support Uganda’s general economic development.

“Africa and Europe are bound to share great opportunities of prosperity if collaborative engagements between them are handled correctly,” Museveni added.
