“For Vision 2040 to be achieved, it requires all sectors to come together and contribute to the national development,” he said.

He added that the National Planning Authority looks forward to strengthening both the Private Sector and the Civil Society.

“This forum will help in evaluation of government’s performance and hence fill the missing gaps in the government’s programs,” he said.

In his speech at the launch of the forum, Gideon Badagawa, the Executive Director of the Private Sector Foundation noted that the role of the private sector is to support government towards service delivery.

“Ugandans deserve an ever improving society to live and work in and this is the main reason why the Civil Society and Private Sector have to exist,” stressed Badagawa.

The Executive Director of the Human Rights Initiative foundation, Livingstone Sewanyana commended this partnership stressing that it would help bring about democracy in this country.

“This forum will be used to discuss the budget, look into the allocation of taxes and how they are used to achieve development,” stressed Sewanyana.

He further noted that the forum would bring about change in the country by bringing all people’s views into one voice.

Vision 2040 intends to see a transformed Ugandan society from a peasant to a modern and prosperous country within 30 years.

According to architects of Vision 2040, a number of Asian countries including Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand adopted long term planning to guide their development paths.

The long term planning helped to guide these governments to intervene systematically and through multiple approaches to foster growth.

The project involves changing from a predominantly low income to a competitive upper middle income country within 30 years.

It is envisaged that the country will graduate to the middle income segment by 2017 and reach a per capita of USD 9,500 by 2040.

The theme of the Vision is, “Accelerating Uganda’s Socioeconomic Transformation”.

To realize this Vision, Uganda will need to increase its GDP 30 folds in the next 30 years to attain the level of development observed in Upper Middle Income (UMI) countries.
