I warmly welcome you to the 9th visionaries of Uganda Awards
ceremony which recognizes excellence in various sectors and
subsectors of our industries. Tonight, we are celebrating institutional
and individual achievements. We shall also understand related
challenges plus opportunities and together; we shall map out
strategies for better performance. The presence of a cross-section of
Individuals, Corporations and Governmental/Non-Governmental
bodies highlights the magnitude of this function.
Today, am glad to note that as a Country, we continue to make
significant strides towards set goals as exemplified by the awardees
of various categories and rankings. As you note, those who excelled
last year or during previous years may not have held on to the same
positions. For me this is a positive sign of the efforts by companies,

Uganda Vision 2040. This year’s theme “Recognizing continued SocialEconomic transformation of Uganda and strengthening the
fundamentals of the economy to achieve Uganda Vision 2040 amidst
COVID-19 challenges” underlines the direction this Country is
focusing on as we move towards a Middle income status. Already
significant and observable interventions testify to achievements and
support given to you by Government in form of modern infrastructure
development. Government also continues to guarantee a conducive
working environment for everyone.
I therefore take this opportunity to inform everybody that Uganda
needs organizations and entrepreneurial minded people who are
market driven, and ones who meet the expectations of our people,
economy and society. Let me also emphasize that the ultimate
consumer of your products and services are the ones who judge your
performance by way of choosing or rejecting your products and
services. This is therefore a wakeup call to everyone to understand
the dynamics of the market place where quality prevails over
everything else.
I wish to emphasize that this awards ceremony is very important for
all 2021 participants and winners. This is so, because recognizing
achievement is a motivating factor as it encourages innovation,
creativity and instills zeal to move to another level of social economic
development. This has a positive bearing on drivers of development
and positively impacts the economy of this Country.

May I now commend Visionaries of Uganda for being good partners
in developing Uganda. I argue you to continue cherishing and
strengthening a globally integrated Uganda economy; where this
Country plays a leading role as a regional economic power. In
addition, I invite you to continue working with Government in its
effort to put this Country on a firm road to realizing middle income
aspirations; as stipulated by H.E President Yoweri Museveni,
following the launch of vision 2040. Government shall therefore
continue identifying the Visionaries who uphold the best practices;
and will recognize all their efforts.
In a special way, I wish to thank the Visionaries of Uganda awards

working hard for am sure you will make it to the winners list, next
year.
