ENTEBBE. President Yoweri Museveni has received and held discussions with Mr Norbert Traublinger the Chief Executive Officer of a German Werke Eicher Company, who is interested in setting up a tractor assembling plant in Eastern Uganda.

President Museveni encouraged his guest, who called on him yesterday at State House, Entebbe to also consider starting a factory for manufacturing tractors in Uganda.

Mr. Museveni and Mr. Traublinger concurred that the tractor assembling plant should be built in either Tororo or Mbale Industrial Park in Eastern Region because it is easier to transport the heavy machines that are required for the plant using the railway.

Mr. Traublinger revealed to President Museveni that his company will use solar panels to generate its own electricity to run the plant. He noted that the operationalization of the tractor-assembling venture will go a long way in supporting the growth of the agricultural sector in Uganda.
