The Ugandan Minister of the Environment arrived in Budapest at the invitation of HTCC, with HTCC running its programs and escorts. His programs included visiting the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Budapest, and presenting HTCC affiliates that he considered relevant. In addition, he attended a sister meeting with colleagues in Öskü, where he discussed the possibilities of cooperation in educational and cultural areas. In the tight program, time has come for a little "exotic". Taking advantage of the favorable weather and the proximity of Öskü to the largest ski slope in Hungary, the management of HTCC and AHU and the management of the Eplényi Ski Resort have gained insight into the life of the ski park, where they have also tried the ski lifts. In addition to leaving a lifetime experience, tourism is also thinking about developing a cable car in Uganda.
