Below is the Minister’s full statement;

“I have concluded my one week working visit to China. Together with my delegation, we attended the world Internet conference in Wuhzen province and good discussions on ensuring safety and sustainability of the cyberspace were held. The future of the Internet, its equitable access and the end of its monopoly by the big powers dominated the discussions.

Famous personalities like ALI BABA spoke at the conference that was attended by world ICT leaders and Presidents of ICT multinational firms. After the conference, my delegation and I visited the CCTV headquarters in Beijing. I thank our Embassy in Beijing -China for organising this meeting. I discussed with the management of CCTV (China’s national broadcaster) possible areas of mutual cooperation and partnership with UBC. We agreed in principle that our two state national broadcasters should corporate and learn from each other.

For UBC, this is a major step in our efforts to rebuild and revamp it. CCTV will accord UBC staff an opportunity to learn new modern skills in broadcasting, content production and management and use of new modern digital equipment. An official MOU will follow through our countries’ formal diplomatic channels,” Frank Tumwebaze said.
