Over 3,000 have attended the second edition of Pakasa forum, an initiation of Vision Group intended to open up opportunities for the young people in the country’s economy.

The forum that has just ended at Kampala Parents Primary School attracted people from various walks of life.

Although initiative mainly targets young people who make up the bulk of the country’s population, just like the first edition, the second edition of the forum was attended by both the young and old people seeking to understand the business opportunities that exist in the economy.

The participants received a great deal of knowledge from the Bank of Uganda deputy governor, Dr. Louis Kasekende, who informed them about the available investment opportunities in Agriculture, rapid population growth, transport, tourism, Oil and Gas and urbanization.

During a session moderated by Vision Group Chief Executive Officer, Robert Kabushenga, Kasekende explained the growth of the economy and how the current economic stability presents enormous opportunities for the Ugandans intending to do business.

The people also gained from the inspirational lectures of some of the youth who have turned their business ideas into big businesses fetching millions of money for them every month. They hailed Vision Group for the Pakasa initiative on account of the business opportunities it has opened up for them so far.

Kabushenga said the initiative is informed by the Company’s vision of advancing society. “We are going to pursue that vision with passion,” he added.

The forum was streamed live on Urban and Bukedde and TV west of Vision Group. The Pakasa forum gets its name from the Pakasa pullout that is carried by New Vision every Friday.
