KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Dr. Arkebe Oqubay, the Minister and Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia

The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) have organised a High-Level Dialogue on the Economy of Uganda.

The dialogue will be held on Tuesday, April 11 at Imperial Royale Hotel starting at 8:00 am with a theme: ‘Realising the promises of Green Growth – Promoting Sustainable Industrialisation in Uganda’.

The key note address will be delivered by Dr. Arkebe Oqubay, the Minister and Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, who authored the widely quoted book: ‘Made in Africa’.

The book examines how and why outcomes of industrial policy are shaped by particular factors and it also scrutinises the industrial structures associated with global value chains to demonstrate the challenges faced by African firms in international markets.

 

Experts from the academia, policy makers from government, members of the private sector and manufacturers’ associations will discuss that needs to be done to unlock Uganda’s industrial growth while observing inclusive green growth.
