ICT Sector Consultative workshop held at Sheraton Kampala

Some of the objectives of the workshop included;

·         To inform stakeholders on the expanded ICT sector mandate

·         To obtain input for the digital Uganda Vision

 

Digital Uganda Vision is a branded campaign that will aspire to build a better society, foster innovation and create a positive social and economic impact through a unified action plan focused on technology based empowerment by bringing the best e-services to all citizens.

A brief presentation was made by Ms. Shelley Shott from Intel Corporation giving examples of other countries with digital vision and have successfully achieved their vision.

On his part, the Minister of ICT & NG, Hon. Frank Tumwebaze said his Ministry is in the process of integrating disjointed ICT initiatives in government so that service delivery to citizens can improve. The Ministry will support the Judiciary to have e-courts and reduce the need to move from rural areas to Kampala to access court services, support e-health programs, and invest in satellite communication among other programs. He noted that because of the efforts his Ministry has put, the cost of internet is reducing and effective July 1 2017, the cost of internet will fall from 300 USD to 190 USD per megabits per second per month for all government MDA’s, LG’s and target user groups such as hospitals, research and education institutions, Business Process Outsourcing agencies and innovation hubs.

 

While giving his key note address, the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister of Uganda, Dr. Ruhakana Rungunda, said the government’s focus is on ICT lead innovation to improve service delivery and that government would like to learn from private sector to do things efficiently and effectively. However, he noted serious challenges still exist because of disjointed ICT policies and programs which do not coordinate and communicate. He commended Ministry of ICT & NG for coming up with a shared digital platform where stakeholders can engage to shape the future.

 

 

The purpose of the ICT stakeholder’s workshop was to seek for stakeholder’s views on the drafted Digital Vision for Uganda. According to the Permanent Secretary ministry of ICT & NG, Hon. Bagiire Vincent Waiswa, digital Vision will compel change in governance processes for delivery of services
