This year marks the 7th edition of the CPA Economic Forum, a platform for accountants, economists, civil society leaders, and the general public to contribute to the national economic development plan by suggesting policy recommendations to the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development.
Previous policy recommendations were in the areas of tax reforms, the revival of the Uganda airlines with keen interest on management, the student’s loan system under the national education finance board, infrastructure and agriculture policies.
All these policies were debated by some of Uganda’s most experienced advisors and thought leaders with an eye for the socio-economic impact of Uganda’s population.
The theme for the 7th CPA Economic Forum suggests; Transformation for Social-Economic empowerment!
It is a theme broad enough to be covered in over 9 segmented topical discussions to inform policy recommendations. Www.tradigeconomic.com says GDP Growth Rate in Uganda averaged 1.40 percent from 2008 until 2018, reaching an all-time high of 4.30 percent in the third quarter of 2012 and a record low of -2.40 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Forum aims to disseminate the growth trend and colligate it to social-economic development and how it can empower nationals in all sectors.
Topical discussions include; Building a Robust Agricultural Sector, Revisiting Uganda’s 2019/20 National Budget, Infrastructure Development: Creating Opportunities, Transforming our Education System, Labour Mobility, Socio-Economic Implications of Gambling and Betting, Urban Planning, Opportunities & Challenges, Structural Bottlenecks to Uganda’s Economy, and Digital Technology: Building an Inclusive Trustworthy and Sustainable Digital Society.
