Uganda: Big Population Good for Development – President

See original/source content:

President Museveni yesterday praised a large population as a very important resource for economic development even as he admitted that he runs a country with more than 25 million homesteads wallowing in poverty.
The President, who was launching the 2014 National Population Census in Kampala, however, noted that the 34.6 million Ugandans will only benefit the country if they are of “quality, not human beings without value addition.”
“A big population is important to our quest for socio-economic transformation set out in Vision 2040,” Mr Museveni said. “Population growth is a strategic contribution to the regional common market of 160 million people.”
