President Museveni has pledged to support Somalia in its bid to join the East African Community (EAC) and exploit trade opportunities that exist in the region.

According to Museveni, Somalia meets all requirements to become a member of the EAC, including having a border with a member nation, a private sector-driven economy, and democratic government.

He was speaking yesterday in Kampala at the conclusion of a two-day first-ever Uganda-Somalia business and investment forum.

The purpose of the summit, which was attended by the president of Somalia, Hassan Sheik Mohamud, as well as other dignitaries, was to give the private sector, the business community, and the government a forum to discuss methods to lower the cost of doing business between the two nations.
