I commissioned 15 factories & broke ground on nine, bringing the total to 24. This has been possible because of correct policy decisions using our resources. I therefore thank the NRM who understood our vision and strategy and supported it. I also thank our Chinese friends for encouraging investments in Africa. I particularly want to thank the investors who invested in textiles because they have given us strength to get rid of second hand clothes and most importantly, given jobs to our youth.
Currently, the Sino Uganda-Mbale Industrial Park has 36 factories composed of; 20 factories in operation, 5 factories under construction and 12 at a stage of assembling plants and machinery.
