The goal of the Uganda National Dialogue is to create a platform for Ugandans, in all our diversity, to agree on a shared transformative and development agenda that accelerates the consolidation of peace and justice, sustainable development and shared prosperity. The theme of the Dialogue is consolidation of peace, democracy, and development to achieve shared prosperity in Uganda. Peace, democracy and development acquire their true meaning when they create conditions for equal opportunity and shared prosperity. Achieving shared prosperity means that every Ugandan has equal opportunity to succeed and that our dreams are not limited by today’s failures but by the possibilities of the future. The National Dialogue Process is therefore designed as a citizen owned and citizen led process seeking to build on the gains and progress made since Independence in order to strengthen our foundations for equal opportunity and shared prosperity for all Ugandans.
Uganda’s tumultuous period following the attainment of independence is well documented. However, the progress attained over the last three decades is worth celebrating and represents a source of optimism about what we can achieve as a country if we pull together, work together and strengthen our sense of nationalism and patriotism towards our country. Indeed, H.E President Museveni has articulated a vision of a Uganda that moves steadily towards the attainment of middle-income status by 2020. President Museveni’s unassailable record in shepherding the country over the last 30 years is a great asset that constitutes an enduring legacy but also or strong foundation upon which sustainable peace and shared prosperity can be built. The National Dialogue process provides a tremendous opportunity to protect and build on the positive aspects of our post-independence legacy. Most importantly, it is an important vehicle to mobilize Ugandans in all their diversity to move in unison in the continuing journey towards sustainable peace, consolidation of democracy and shared economic prosperity.
