He said that the seemingly productive activities of the economy only cover transport, restaurants, hair salons, etc but not the manufacturing sector.

He said that was the more reason why Uganda requires foreign entrepreneurship as a vital necessity.

Mr. Museveni, who has in recent years travelled across the world in search of investors to commit billions of dollars in the Ugandan economy, said the inability to manufacture our own goods leads directly to the challenge of job creation.

The President commended Uganda’s development partners and consultants for their contribution to the development of our economy over the years.

He urged government technocrats to cultivate and treasure good working relations with the country’s development partners in order to tap into the free and valuable advice that they offer.

The PIRT 2013-2015 is running under the theme “Agriculture, ICT and Petroleum”.
