President Museveni joined hundreds of guests to celebrate Europe Day in the Republic of Uganda at a reception hosted by EU Head of Delegation to Uganda, Ambassador Kristian Schmidt on May 9th, 2017 at his residence in Kololo.
High Representative Federica Mogherini and the European Commission today presented a revitalised framework for joint action to build a stronger strategic partnership between Europe and Africa for more prosperity and stability in the two continents.
2017 is a defining year for the partnership between Europe and Africa. In a rapidly changing global landscape, Africa is experiencing profound economic, political and societal changes, and its importance to the internal and external dimensions of Europe's security and prosperity is becoming ever more obvious. Europe and Africa have much to gain from increased political and economic ties, but also a lot to lose if they fail to act.
