I have the pleasure to present to you the October edition of our monthly e-magazine, The Presidency.
In each edition, my team and I try and incorporate feedback that we have been getting from the readers since the first edition. Our vision is to see the magazine satisfying everyone’s expectations; both the fast readers and the in-depth analysts. In this edition, we have extracted a quote or two from each story, to aid our fast readers. It will be easy for the readers to appreciate the President’s position on a matter even without in-depth analysis.
The Government Citizen Interaction Centre (GCIC) was established to bridge the gap between the Government and the citizenry. We use different tools and platforms, including this e-magazine, to facilitate this interaction. Therefore, this e-magazine serves to bridge the gap between the Presidency and the public, by bringing you monthly news from the office and residence of the President.
In the month of October, the President travelled abroad for official duty, first, to officiate at the Uganda National Day at the ongoing Dubai Expo 2020 and also to hold discussions with the leaders of the United Arab Emirates. The President detoured through Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where he attended the inauguration of Ahmed Abiy, as the Prime Minister of Ethiopia. The President had cut down on his foreign travel due to COVID-19.
In this edition, we have brought you an analysis of the progress of Uganda Investment Authority, breaking down the strides they have made in establishing an industrial park in every corner of Uganda. In next editions, we shall be able to bring you analyses from different Ministries, Departments and Agencies, regarding Government projects, which the President has launched, visited or commissioned, and how they will transform our country.
Lastly, in this edition, we are publishing the President’s powerful speech, delivered on Independence Day, on 9th October, at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds.
I now have the pleasure to present to you the fifth edition of The Presidency.
