The Government of Uganda and the Tourism Private Sector, with the support of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Uganda have launched the Uganda Tourism Inclusive Business Ecosystem Platform today Thursday April 6, 2017 at the Golf Course Hotel – Kampala
Uganda’s tourism sector has emerged as one of the fastest growing sectors in the country, single largest export earner and generator of foreign exchange. However, the rapid economic growth of the sector has not brought prosperity to all. Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by world leaders call on countries to mobilize all efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
Strengthening the supportive ecosystems can stimulate the development of more inclusive businesses and holds the key to unlocking Uganda’s tourism potential. On the other hand, Inclusive Business offers an opportunity for private enterprises to meaningfully contribute to attainment of SDGs and national development whilst realizing commercial success.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Country Director, Ms. Almaz Gebru, together with the Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities Ephraim Kamuntu and the Representative of the Swiss Development Cooperation, have presided over the launch.
