The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, has expressed hope the country’s state-owned flag carrier will launch operations to Belgrade in the near future. Following a visit by Serbia’s Minister for Internal and Foreign Trade, Tomislav Momirović to Uganda earlier this year, and ahead of President Museveni’s visit to Serbia this week, Uganda’s head of state, said, “I would like for Uganda Airlines to begin a partnership with Air Serbia so that it can begin flights to the country in order to fast-track business, tourism and person-to-person exchange. I will be coming to Serbia with a delegation of sixty companies and businesspeople”. Mr Musevini added he had asked the Ministry for Works and Transport together with Uganda Airlines to explore all partnership avenues with Air Serbia. The Ugandan President is due to arrive in Serbia on Sunday.
