Sinclair was in the country to brief the Premier on the upcoming Summit 2014 to be held in London, UK in October.


Mbabazi said Uganda and other East African member states are concentrating on promoting trade within the regional block by removing trade barriers and establishing common infrastructure such as railway lines and roads to link up the region.


“Once we integrate as a region, it will be much easier to strategically work with the other regional blocks on the Continent,” Mbabazi said.


He commended the removal of trade barriers which has enabled goods coming from Mombasa to reach Kampala in a record time of four days compared to twenty two days it took previously.


The London summit is being organised by the Daily Mail and General Trust.


It is expected to attract heads of States and Government ministers across the globe and is also designed to attract the private sector to discuss public private partnerships and bankable projects across the African Continent.


The Summit will focus on the opportunities in the oil and gas sector, mining, agriculture, energy and infrastructure development.


The meeting was also attended by the Ministers of State for Agriculture, Prof. Zerubabel Nyiira and ICT, Nyombi Thembo.
