A delegation of Italian entrepreneurs, through their company called Intercominvest, while meeting President Yoweri Museveni last week expressed interest to exploit granite and marble minerals in Uganda. The two natural resources are major materials in the sector of building and road construction.
President Museveni told the leaders of Intercominvest Company that spearheaded the delegation that granite and marble should be used in building and construction of municipal roads, walkways and small urban street roads in the country as well as floors of houses.
The Ugandan leader advised the visiting Italians to visit areas of Kibaale district in the Bunyoro Sub-Region where they will be able to appreciate the abundant crop of rocks that could be of great use in their construction work.
Granite and marble are part of the different types of minerals spread across the country offering improved prospects of wealth creation, employment, and security.
The Intercominvest is a family construction company that was founded in 1987 by Franco Del Maestro and Remus Minchella. Del Maestro was part of the delegation that met President Museveni at State House in Entebbe.
The company took steps to work in Africa when it established itself in Equatorial Guinea after the year 2000 as a leader in the field of civil construction, industrial, institutional and in all public and private construction sectors from architectural, structural and plant engineering, among others.
