MINISTRY OF TRADE INDUSTRY AND COOPERATIVES 59TH INDEPENDENCE DAY MESSAGE -HON. BAHATI DAVID
Transformation of Uganda’s economy through industrialization is one of the fundamental goals of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Government. The pursuit of this strategic direction has not been by accident but rather as a result of intensive analysis of the problems facing the Country, as well as the opportunities that surround us. Our approach to industrialize Uganda has been steadfast and anchored on addressing the ten ‘Strategic Bottlenecks’ that H.E the President has regularly informed us about. Industrial development is a participatory process that involves the participation of government, civil society, the private sector and the citizens in general. It is important that all define their roles in the country’s development process and pursue them as a patriotic duty. Our goal is to ensure that we build a fully integrated, competitive, high value and productive industrial sector and this is achievable if we all work together as Ugandans. I wish all Ugandans a happy 59th Independence anniversary. For God and My Country!
