The Deputy Speaker of Parliament Mr Thomas Tayebwa has hailed the Chairman of Rupaleria group of companies Dr Sudhir Rupaleria for his passion and leadership in hospitality and tourism development in the Country.

 

While officiating at the Tourism night event in commemoration of the World tourism day yesterday in Kampala, Tayebwa said Mr Sudhir is one of the investors who holds Uganda at heart.

 

“I know people who have been calling Dr Sudhir to go and develop their Countries, I know many, some of them were asking me, but this Sudhir man what did you give him as Uganda? The man has a lot of money and we would like him to come and invest in our areas,” He revealed

 

“So Chairman, I want to thank you and your team of investors who have looked at Uganda as your number one destination for investment,” He said.

 

The deputy Speaker also assured the investors of the Government’s support whenever they needed it.

Mr Tayebwa urged Ugandans to market their country wherever  they go.

“This is our home, whether you want it or not we are going to be buried here,” He emphasized, adding, “Don’t hate your country because you don’t have any other country, if you go around painting a picture of Uganda, that is totally different and yet for you, you come and enjoy, it’s a point of concern for some of us, you can say whatever you want but know the limit and be the Ambassador of Uganda wherever you are and that is one way we can promote tourism in Uganda,” He urged.

 

The Deputy Speaker also pledged Parliament’s support to the tourism sector through both legislation and appropriation in key enablers like infrastructure and security to raise the tourism momentum.
