Mr. Bing applauded the efforts of the Government of Uganda in developing infrastructure and human resource, noting that this is the only sure way of improving the quality of life for most citizens.

Hon Mwesige in his remarks commended the existing close relationship between Uganda and China, saying such has led to the socio-economic transformation of most parts of Ugandans.

He gave a green light to Sinopharm International to supply the required medical equipment to the Military Referral Hospital in Mbuya, based on the firm’s earlier works at Mulago hospital where it installed a CIT-Scan.
