Dignity living

"UGANDA is to benefit from $100m contribution by Kuwait to support food production and agri-businesses development, James Mugume the permanent secretary in the foreign affairs ministry has said.

The fund, known as "Dignity Living," was launched in April during the World Islamic Economic Forum held in Kuwait. Its aim is to address global food shortages.

The Emir of Kuwait provided the money to promote agriculture in arable countries so that they could export to Middle East states.

The world, including oil producing countries, is facing high commodity prices due to food shortages.

"The fund will enable food producers to commercialise agriculture and produce more items for export.""
