“I think the Belt and Road Initiative is a very good initiative because it was built in the image of the ancient Silk Road, which connected China with the rest of the world,” he said.

Taking Africa for example, Kayonga pointed out that there are several connectivity infrastructure projects in progress such as the east Africa grand railway from Mombassa in Kenya to east African countries such as Uganda and Rwanda, and the one from the port of Dar es Salaam to Rwanda to the west African coast.

“We have seen the Addis Ababa–Djibouti Railway and some other infrastructure projects in Rwanda such as roads connecting other areas inside or outside the region,” he added. “There are also other projects covering areas including the economy, culture, education, and health.”

“To date we have completed many projects, but a lot more remain to be done,” he said.
