On 9th October 2012, Uganda marked 50 years since it attained her independence in the year 1962. The golden jubilee presented an opportunity for Uganda to reflect on the economic challenges and opportunities it has so far registered under self rule. Most important however, it was the occasion at which Ugandans could redefine their obligations and commitments towards economic growth and development. It is on this ground that this public dialogue is being organised with the aim of offering a platform for government officers, researchers, academia, members of parliament, political leaders, civil society and media to reflect on the status quo and the prospects for the next 50 years. The focus will be on future economic policies, inclusive growth and development. The dialogue will discuss the possible opportunities and challenges facing Uganda in the coming half a century.
ACTADE and KAS recognise the need for Uganda to attain economic prosperity. To achieve this, the two organisations create a platform to engage the public to discuss possible solutions on how Uganda can achieve economic growth and development, through documentation and dissemination of information on issues concerning the economy and sustainable development, and learning from the ideas of Social Market Economy. For this initiative, a special edition of the magazine "The Guide" with article contributions from the CSOs, media, and government has been published and is to be launched at the public dialogue by the Minister of State for Economic Monitoring, Hon. Henry Banyenzaki.
