Uganda Submits Funding Plan to Build Roads in Eastern Congo
The Finance Ministry submitted the funding proposal to parliament, Kenneth Mugambe, the ministry’s budget director, said Tuesday, without giving details on how the money would be raised.
Uganda’s cabinet last month approved the plan to build the roads, which total 223 kilometers (139 miles). Many roads in eastern Congo are in a state of disrepair following a series of armed conflicts in recent years. Trade with Congo accounted for $162 million in 2019, according to Bloomberg data.
