    MWENDWA: "AS DELEGATES MIGHT BE FAMILIAR, WE MAINTAIN ONE AIRLINE ON AN EAST AFRICAN BASIS WHICH HAS HELPED IN IMPROVING COMMUNICATIONS BOTH WITHIN EAST AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND ALSO IN THE REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL FIELDS. THIS AIRLINE HAS ALWAYS OPERATED WITHOUT SUBSIDY AND I AM GLAD TO SAY THAT FOR THE LAST SUCCESSIVE 12 YEARS, IT HAS MADE A REASONABLE OPERATING PROFIT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO ENSURE, SO FAR AS EAST AFRICAN GOVERNMENTS ARE CONCERNED AND BECAUSE OF THEIR LIMITED RESOURCES, THAT WHATEVER FORM OF CO-OPERATION COMES ABOUT, THIS AIRLINE MUST CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO STAND ON ITS OWN AND COMPETE INTERNATIONALLY WITHOUT ANY HOPES OF GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES."
