Uganda: Chinese to Upgrade UBC


The Monitor (Kampala) wrote on January 20th that the Chinese's government has sent a 10-man delegation in the country to assess measures in which Uganda Broadcasting Corporations (UBC) technical facilities can be upgraded. A press release from the PRO Jane Kasumba said the technical team would also evaluate the possibility of installing new radio and television channels. The development follows an agreement signed between the two governments that will see the national broadcaster obtain a grant to establish the channel and up grade its broadcasting facilities.
