Honourable Members of Parliament, Parliament of Uganda;
Honourable Members of Parliament, Parliament of Ghana;
Technical Staff from both Parliaments;
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Good morning,

I would like to welcome you all to the Bank of Uganda. It is a privilege to host our brothers and sisters from Ghana, a country which holds a special status in Africa on account of the pioneering role it has played in many different fields – political, economic and social – and in particular for its pan Africanist approach to foreign policy which has been an inspiration throughout the continent.
