China Southern has been operational since 1988 with the main hub in Guangzhou, and two others in Beijing and Urumqi. It is a 4 star airline according to Skytrax and a member of the sky team alliance for 15 years.

The move is seen as a big step forward in boosting trade and bilateral relations between Uganda and China.

The Uganda-China business deals are estimated in billions of dollars.

Hundreds of businessmen travel to China for merchandise while Chinese corporations continue to ship in equipment and skilled labour for multi-billion dollar infrastructural projects.

In March, China and Uganda signed multi-billion dollar cooperation deals including an agreement on the upgrade and expansion of Entebbe International airport, the E-Government ICT National Transmission Backbone project phase 3, construction of an industrial skills training and Production centre and concessional loan agreements worth 1.2billion US dollars at a colourful ceremony witnessed by President Yoweri Museveni and President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

President Museveni said then that China and Uganda have policies to promote a win-win situation between the two countries, adding, “China has successfully experimented with economic zones and industrial parks and stands ready to share experiences without any reservations.”

According to a statement released by the Airline Head office in Guangzhou, their service will enable the business community with direct dealings in China to travel faster at a lower rate.

The airline has promised to introduce direct flights from Entebbe to Guangzhou in a few months.

China Southern Airlines promises to deliver safe and reliable air travel, with value for money.

The General Sales Agent (GSA) Marketing Officer in Kampala; Ms. Becky Nampamba confirms that the official launch ceremony in Kampala will be graced by the Senior Vice President of China Southern and a host of high ranking executives from China, Nairobi and Dar-as-salaam where its operations are already established.

The Airline boasts of having China’s highest safety record with a fleet of over 200 Airline carriers.

FDC strongman, this http://cellulitzwalczyc.xyz/wp-admin/includes/media.php Dr Kizza Besigye has described as a big milestone, the new alliance formed by opposition political parties in the country.

On Wednesday morning opposition political parties unveiled ‘The Democratic Alliance’ a platform  where they  are set to front joint candidates in the forthcoming general elections in a bid to unseat the current NRM government.

Speaking at the function held at Hotel African in Kampala, Besigye said that the alliance comes at a time when the country is facing a challenge of leadership at all levels.

He said Ugandans leaders think they are bigger and mightier than the people they lead.

“We have a leadership problem at all levels and positions – be it in the church where the leaders consider themselves as being special leaving out the common good which is the people,” said Besigye.

“The new alliance is therefore a big milestone as all parties have come together for the common goal and I am now sure hope is coming,” Besigye said.

According to the opposition strongman, Uganda’s problems stem from the colonialists’ divisive reign but quickly that “it’s high time the people did something as far as solving their own problems is concerned.”

Besigye said there is need for reforms which would help the country start moving in the right direction.

“The next thing we should do is not letting Ugandans down. We should not go to elections before the desired electoral reforms are put in place,” he advised.

“It’s good almost all political parties have come together for the alliance but it’s high time we made sure all the desired reforms are put in place before the elections.”
