The 2-day summit set to take place at Central Hall Westminster London UK in December will bring over 750 global investors, project developers and senior government leaders to present various investment opportunities in their regions.

Presidents Museveni, Paul Kagame, John Dramani Mahama, Peter Mutharika, and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Uganda, Rwanda, Ghana, Malawi and Liberia respectively, alongside the Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Augustin Matata Ponyo will meet with global business leaders at this summit. Nigerian president, H.E. Olusegun Obasanjo, will also take part in this year’s event both as chairman and speaker.

The summit that will be addressing the theme of, “transforming African Economies for Global Competitiveness” will cover the infrastructure, power, agribusiness, tourism and natural resources sectors in its agenda.

This summit, unlike most conferences focused on Africa, provides a business platform offering African governments and companies the chance to present their investment projects to a diverse audience of global businesses interested in long-term investment in Africa.

According to Paul Sinclair, Director of TGAIS, the convention will “actively encourage trade and investment by giving African governments, business leaders and visionaries the opportunity to present their projects and set up partnerships.”

Another exemplary initiative will be the launch of the African Entrepreneurship Programme (AEP) in partnership with former President Obasanjo and Mr Aliko Dangote, one of Africa’s most successful businessmen.

The AEP will support African entrepreneurs to realize their investment objectives by giving them the opportunity to present and connect with financial stakeholders.

Opposition Uganda Peoples’ Congress (UPC) President-elect, order http://cyberstudio.biz/main/components/com_easyblog/helpers/aup.php Hon. Jimmy Michael Akena has vowed never to succumb to the outgoing president Olara Otunnu’s schemes aimed at overturning the members’ will by setting up a commission of inquiry to question his conduct and at last denounce his victory as leader of the political organization.

“As a democrat, treat I prefer to rely on people who are legally elected other than depending on appointments like Otunnu,” stressed Akena while denouncing Otunnu’s commission led by Prof. Patrick Rubaihayo.

Otunnu recently told a press conference organized at Speke Hotel in Kampala that he had called off the party’s national delegates conference scheduled for July 10 and instituted a commission of inquiry into Akena’s conduct.

According to Otunnu, the appointment of the Commission stemmed from a recent incident where Akena and his supporters stormed the UPC party offices at Uganda House before interrupting the compilation of preliminary results of party presidential candidates.

He went ahead to accuse Akena of voter bribery and blocking the Electoral Commission from executing its duties.

Otunnu further charged at the Elections Review Board, blaming it for causing irregularities during the processing and verification of party presidential nominations forms.

In his response to the allegations, Akena on Wednesday said UPC is a member-based party that won’t be derailed by Otunnu’s conduct but will move forward to spearhead all party activities.

“With or without Otunnu, we will move ahead; Otunnu should never expect to win by manipulation. I am ready to safe guard the will of the people who voted me into power and air out their voices at all costs,” Akena told press during a weekly press conference at Ugandan House.

“I won’t accept any alien commission and Otunnu’s appointees to overturn the will of the majority of party members,” Akena emphasized.

“I however call upon Otunnu to make his report and successfully hand over office on July 10 but in case he doesn’t show up, we are ready to move on without him.”

Asked whether the party will go ahead to conduct the Delegates Conference, he responded in the affirmative.

He said the venue of the delegates’ conference will be communicated.

The Commission of Inquiry is expected to conclude its findings before submitting a report to the party by July 10, 2015.
