African Union Summit on course for July 19-27


(eTN) – Confirmation has been received from sources close to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the continental summit of the African Union will indeed take place in July as planned and that funding has been secured from the Ministry of Finance.

Intending visitors to Uganda over the period of the summit are advised to secure hotel bookings immediately, before arrival in Uganda, ditto for flight reservations, as the Entebbe–Kampala–Mukono corridor will see the fully-booked signs go up soon, considering the influx of top-level delegations comprising heads of state, heads of government, ministerial delegations, international observers from multilateral agencies and organizations, and the media train in tow.

The present series of conferences and large-scale meetings will be a shot in the arm for the local hospitality industry.
