Uganda has in the past enjoyed a rosy relationship with Israel. The Ministry of defence in 2009 bought hi-tech military spy equipment from Tel Aviv. Several army officers have been trained in Israel.

The Middle East country’s intelligence organs Mossad and Shin Bet have as well trained CMI officers.

The Special Forces Group (SFG) cadets receive special training from Israel instructors at Kasenyi training grounds, Entebbe.

The elite force guards President Museveni and his family.

President Shimon recounted how he last visited Uganda in the early 1960s.

He said building economic integration through promoting education wealth enables flow of wisdom across borders to propel regional economic growth.

Shimon gave an example of his country which yields 15 percent returns higher than any other country in the world courtesy of advancement of technology.

“We look at plants and vegetables that don’t use a lot of water and use computers to determine what a plant needs. This year we got the best agriculture production up from just one tonne to over 30 tonnes,” he said.

“Promoting food security is central in Israel’s development activities. Israel has acquired considerable knowledge and expertise through its own rapid and successful agricultural development,” Peres said.

He hailed Museveni for championing democratic rule, saying colonialists had divided the African continent.

“Now, Africa is awakening to rectify the past mistakes. I congratulate you upon re-election. This is proof of the trust people have in you,” Peres added.

Museveni called for support of economic integration.

“Past leaders didn’t see the importance of integration through the economy. It’s not only about politics. Uganda, like many other developing countries have a challenge of `brain drain.’ We call for support in training and retaining science professionals,” he said.
