Commissioned six industries; Orion transformers, Alfasan limited, Steel and Tubes industries, Interior Technologies, Luuka Plastics and Toyota motors in Namanve industrial park. This brings the number of active operators in the park to 35.
These will add value to locally available raw materials thus boosting the agricultural and mineral sectors. Industry is one of the sectors that will spur the development of Uganda & economically liberate our people. For instance, this park so far employs about 3000 people.
To support local industries, I have already directed that Government departments must buy what is produced here. Officials who do not implement this will be dealt with for being an obstacle our progress.
On insecurity, I have directed the police to increase their presence in all the industrial parks, this coupled with the security infrastructure that we are modernising, we shall be able to arrest criminal elements. 在不安全问题上，我已指示警察增加在所有工业园区的存在，再加上我们正在现代化的安全基础设施，我们将能够逮捕犯罪分子。
I am happy to commission these six industries. Those who have eyes can see that Uganda is on the right path to development.
