Dr Rukaari who was elected to sit on a 20-member World Chamber Federation General Council, said Uganda is expected to participate in the February 2021 process that will select the host of the ICC Centre for Entrepreneurship for Anglophone.
“Through the centre, we will leverage ICC’s global influence to develop skills for young people who face uncertain employment prospects and help catalyse local entrepreneurship through deeper collaborations with companies, chambers of commerce and technology partners,” he said.
“The World Chamber Federation General Council has been key in driving business and development across the globe thus it was time for Uganda to tap into the opportunities that come with the centre.”
