SERBIAN STATE SECRETARY ON UGANDA VISIT
Tuesday, 1st August 2017
Hon. Sam Kutesa meets H.E Nemanja Steavnovic, Serbian State Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Kampala

The Minister of Foreign Affairs Hon Sam Kuteesa and the State Minister for Foreign Affairs in charge of International Affairs Hon. Henry Okello Oryem, met with the Serbian State Secretary, H.E Nemanja Steavnovic at Ministry of Foreign Affairs Kampala on 01/08/2017. The purpose of his visit was to pay a courtesy call on the Minister and also to deliver a message from the President of the Republic of Serbia to H.E President Museveni.

Recalling the historical friendship between Uganda and Serbia Hon Kutesa recalled that Uganda and Serbia formally established diplomatic relations in 1987. This was the period when Uganda was promoting the barter trade policy through Produce Marketing Board. At that time Uganda and Serbia agreed to the barter trade policy, culminating into the repair of the Mityana-Mubende road, and rehabilitation of the former Apollo Hotel (later renamed Kampala Sheraton) among others. The two Ministers agreed that the long relationship between the two countries should translate into more economic gains.

Mr Steavnovic stated that Uganda could learn a lot from Serbia's expertise particularly in the application of ICT in Agriculture. He added that NOVISAD, a Serbian company, is already cooperating with National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) to transform Uganda's agricultural sector. Victoria group, another Serbian private investment group is ready to cooperate in crop production and processing. The company works with over 400 cooperatives and provides farmers with tested, high quality and high yielding seeds (only Non- GMO), Fertilizers, pesticides and financial support. Victoria group also deals in oil seed processing, technical analysis and testing of oil seed especially sunflower.

H.E Mr. Nemanja Steavnovic intimated that Serbia had a deep interest in working with Uganda to build investor confidence, promote trade and investment and thus enhance the development of investment projects. His government also expressed her willingness to work with Uganda on technical cooperation and capacity building in the Defense sector.

The Ministers agreed on a joint visit to Serbia of Ministers of Agriculture, Defense and Energy to follow up on further areas of cooperation in those respective sectors.

Hon Okello, pointed out that Serbia, which is a renown consumer of coffee at 31,000 tons of coffee a year would find a reliable supply of quality Coffee from Uganda and encourage the State Secretary to interest Coffee businesses in Serbia to trade in Ugandan Coffee. On the Oil industry, Hon Okello explained that a new area of production of petroleum by-products would also be worthwhile for Serbia to explore.

Mr Steavnovic will be in Uganda for two days during which time he is expected to have a meeting with H.E. President Yoweri Museveni.

MFA REMARKS AT THE MINISTERIAL MEETING OF
THE UGANDA-TANZANIA JOINT BOARDER COMMISSION,
BUKOBA, TANZANIA, 29 JULY 2017

Colleague Ministers,
Permanent Secretaries,
Excellencies,
Distinguished delegates,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like at the outset to express my gratitude to the Government and people of the United Republic of Tanzania for the warm welcome and hospitality extended to me and my delegation since our arrival here in Bukoba.
I also wish to thank my colleague, Hon. Augustine Mahiga for convening this important meeting to further deliberate on cross boarder issues affecting our two countries.
Excellency, my delegation is composed of several Ministers, whom I will now request to introduce themselves.
As you may recall, at the meeting of the Uganda-Tanzania Joint Permanent Commission that was held in Arusha from 3 – 5 April 2017, it was decided that this cross-boarder meeting at the levels of Permanent Secretaries and Ministers be convened to consider the report of the Experts’ Meeting that was held here in Bukoba in April 2016. I wish to thank our Permanent Secretaries and the senior officials for the work they have carried out.
These cross-boarder meetings are as a result of a directive from our leaders to setup a joint crossboarder cooperation commission to look into outstanding issues that affect the people living along our common boarder.
As Foreign Minister, I regularly travel within the region and beyond, however, it is not common to do so by road. I must confess that as I crossed over from Ugandan territory, into Tanzania, the only indication that I was crossing over from one country to another was the physical barriers and personnel that the governments have set up to ‘put asunder what God has put together’, if I could borrow some words that are normally used when taking marriage vows in the Christian faith. Moreover, even after going through these man-made or government created barriers, I never observed any marked differences, and I’m yet to see any, between the peoples, climate and vegetation of the two countries.
What does all this mean?
It is a clear indication of how artificial the boarders separating our countries are. It also underscores the need for, and importance of close cooperation and coordination between our two countries, for the mutual benefit of our two peoples. Indeed, our peoples are on many occasions ahead of governments in terms of cooperaton and integration. On many occasions, governments actually legislate against their free movement between these artificial boarders.
I am happy therefore that we are meeting here today to further strengthen the cordial relations that exist between our two countries and peoples. We should at the end of this meeting be able to facilitate crossboarder cooperation in the core areas that were identified by our two respective Heads of State.
I am particularly happy to note that we have been able to conclude negotiations of a Memorandum of Understanding for Cross-boarder electrification of Nangoma Parish of Uganda. This is a matter that was requested by my President only in February this year. I hope the spirit and speed at which we have concluded this matter will also apply to other areas which we have decided to do by the end of 2017.
Excellencies,
I wish to also touch on the issue of our Joint Permanent Commission, which is the general framework for cooperation between our two countries. During the first session of the JPC, we undertook to conclude a number of MoUs in various areas of cooperation between the two countries. Most of these are supposed to be concluded by October this year. I wish to task the respective Permanent Secretaries responsible for Foreign Affairs to ensure that the decisions we took at that meeting are implemented. As agreed at that JPC meeting, I shall be hosting the next one in Uganda next year. I want to put the Permanent Secretaries on notice that we shall expect nothing short of implementation of the agreed decisions. This should also apply to the decisions that we are taking today. Otherwise it will not be helpful to take decisions that remain unimplemented.
With these remarks, allow me to once again express my gratitude to the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania for hosting this meeting.
