museveni expo 2 piccolaClosed formally on 31st October 2015, Milan EXPO2015 was  a time to show-case the very friendly relations that exist between Uganda and Italy.  Among the many millions of people who visited the Ugandan Stand at the EXPO were hundreds of Ugandans from all walks of life in Italy and beyond.

Uganda’s National Day at the EXPO, 3rd July,  was graced by the Hon Amelia Kyambadde, Minister of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives who also chaired a big business conference attended by over 200 businessmen and women.

Three months later, the President of Uganda himself, General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni visited the Show, drawing large crowds of the Ugandan Diaspora and their friends; as well as Italian businessmen and women to the Ugandan Stand and to another business conference
