Uganda-Turkey Bilateral Relations:
Uganda and Turkey enjoy warm and cordial bilateral relations. The relations between the two countries, especially in the economic sector, continue to grow steadily with huge potential for expansion to other sectors. The two countries have also registered significant cooperation under the umbrella of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).
Turkey opened a fully-fledged Mission in Kampala in 2010 and Uganda reciprocated by opening a mission in Ankara in 2011. The opening of these two Embassies will strengthen further the warm bilateral relations that exist between the two countries.
Trade between Uganda and Turkey is growing steadily, with the number of business people coming to Turkey increasing each year. The number of Turkish business people going to Uganda has also increased in the last couple of years. However, the two countries are yet to register substantial levels in the volume of trade realized. It is hoped that conclusion of key trade agreements will go a long way in stimulating the flow of trade, capital and technology; as well as the economic development for both countries.Education
Turkey offers scholarships to Ugandan students. There are currently more than 100 Ugandan students sponsored by the Turkish Government, pursuing higher education in various institutions in Turkey. The number of students is expected to grow bigger as Ugandans get become more confident with the presence of an Embassy in the host country.
