Uganda plans to invite six Chinese companies next month to bid for up to US$8b worth of rail project contracts, Bloomberg reported. “Bidding documents will be ready by July 10 and we are inviting only Chinese companies,” Uganda Works Minister John Byabagambi said on Wednesday. “We shall sign engineering, procurement and construction contracts with the winners.” The first phase of Uganda’s planned railway construction covers 1,000 kilometers, stretching from the country’s border with Kenya to Rwanda and a town near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Byabagambi said. Work on an extension will take place later.
