During the World Economic Forum in May this year, Siemens signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Uganda to cooperate in the areas of power supply, industry, transportation and healthcare, and to focus on infrastructure investments and partnerships between public and private sectors. More recently, the parties attended a follow-up Lab of Tomorrow workshop in Münich in June to discuss taking the agreement forward. The company is in the process of establishing a permanent office in Uganda to serve as a base for long term collaboration with Ugandan public and private entities. In a further initiative, it is joining the Make IT Alliance of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development to promote start-ups and technology companies across the African continent. The company has been active in Africa for more than 157 years. Today, with more than 3600 employees based in a total of 15 African countries, the company contributes decisively to the continent’s economic development.
