THE Uganda National Vision is being updated to ensure a modern economy, which can generate growth, employment and prosperity, the National Planning Authority (NPA) has said.

The vision is a national plan by which the Government operates.
“We want it to reflect what Uganda will be in 30 years,” said Pascal Odoch, an NPA official.

He said the country was also updating the five-year development plan, which was abandoned in the 1970s.

Odoch was speaking at the closing of a three-day capacity development workshop at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

The workshop was held to build consensus among stakeholders of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) process.

The APRM is an African self-monitoring mechanism, whose overall objective is to promote good governance in member countries.
Odoch said President Yoweri Museveni would present Uganda’s first progress report on the implementation of the Plan of Action in June this year.

He said a version of the country’s review report was also being prepared.

The participants discussed the formation of a national forum on capacity development initiatives and also outlined the tasks it would undertake.

Experts, however, noted that the conclusion of the views discussed in the workshop remain Uganda’s responsibility.
