World Bank and Uganda together in $14 million infrastructure projects
The project will finance various projects including a 100-km (62-mile) road, as well as skills development for hundreds of students at the state-run Uganda Petroleum Institute in the Lake Albert region, the World Bank Uganda country office said in a statement.
The project will also improve overall accessibility to and within the region.
The country has so far discovered up to 6.5 billion barrels of oil in the Lake Albert Basin and production is expected to start in early 2018. ■
