President Yoweri Museveni has received and held a meeting with a delegation of Italian entrepreneurs who have expressed interest in investing in the exploitation of granite and marble in Uganda. The 2 are major materials in the sector of building and road construction.
The entrepreneurs from the Italy-based INTERCOMINVEST Company paid a courtesy call on the president yesterday at state house, Entebbe.
INTERCOMINVEST is a construction company that was founded in 1987 in Italy and has since registered great success in the fields of school building, street, industrial and hydraulic systems in Italy, Germany, Poland and Hungary.
The company took steps to work in Africa when it established itself in Equatorial Guinea after the year 2000 as a leader in the field of civil construction, industrial, institutional and in all public and private construction sectors from architectural, structural and plant engineering, among others.
President Museveni told the delegation that stones should be used in the building and construction of municipal roads, walkways and small urban street roads in the country as well as floors of houses.
He, therefore, advised them to visit areas of Kibale district in the Bunyoro sub-region where there will be able to appreciate the abundant crop of rocks there that could be of great use in their construction work.
The delegation included the chief executive officer of INTERCOMINVEST, Mr. Francesco del maestro and Eng. Paolo Franco Ciavolella.
