Ugandan President Stresses Education Key for Africa
Edited by Xia Yuanyuan  ·2017-11-02

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Wednesday stressed education as a key for the continent to compete on the global stage.

Addressing the fourth edition of the annual Global Forum on Africa held in Dubai, Museveni said all the countries in Africa shall create a "market space" which motivates young African people to build the continent.

"Education is key," said the president. "But we do have a conflict as 'identity versus interest'."

He called on the entire Africa to overcome tribal conflicts and sectarian thinking to create a "next generation Africa" and to spur economic integration in order to compete with global "giants" like the United States.

"Africa should compete with the giants. Uganda can't do so alone," Museveni said, urging African nations to continue to remove barriers of trade within the continent.
