UWRSA Exhibits during the National Budget week 2019Davis Byamugisha
Uganda Warehouse Receipt System Authority did a sensitisation publicity on the National Budget Exhibition Week of 2019 at Kololo Independence Grounds.
The national budget exhibition week of 2019 was originally scheduled for 4th to 6th June 2019 but eventually took place from 5th to 7th June 2019 due to interruption by public holidays.
With the theme “Industrialisation and Job Creation”, the budget week exhibition event was organised by the Ministry of Finance, Uganda Revenue Authority and the Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group and is an initiative to bridge the gap between the public and government institutions. This allows citizens to take part in the national budgeting process and also promotes openness and accountability among government institutions and agencies.
During this three-day exhibition, the public was made aware of and sensitised on the resources allocated to the different government ministries, institutions and agencies.
