Denmark–Uganda relations are foreign relations between Denmark and Uganda. Denmark has an embassy in Kampala, and Uganda has an embassy in Copenhagen.[1][2] Diplomatic relations were established on 1 April 1968.[3] On 12 November 1971, Denmark and Uganda signed a treaty on a Danish Government loan to Uganda.[4] Bilateral relations between Denmark and Uganda are described as strong.[5]
