Friday, 23rd February 2018

Excellencies Heads of State and Government

The Secretary General of the EAC and your Secretariat staff

Government Ministers and Officials

Distinguished Partners and Invited Guests

Ladies and Gentlemen

I welcome you all to this EAC Heads of State Retreat on Infrastructure and Health Financing as part of Development. On behalf of the Government and the people of Uganda, I extend a warm welcome to all of you and invite you to enjoy the hospitality of our Country.

Colleague Heads of State and invited guests, this Joint Retreat will serve two purposes - first, as the 4th Retreat on Infrastructure Development and Financing where we review progress on the implementation of the priority projects agreed upon in the 3rd Retreat held in November 2014. Secondly, as the 1st Retreat on Health Sector Financing and Development.

As at our previous Retreats, this is to say that we owe it to ourselves and the future generations to ensure that this region has efficient, interlinked and interoperable infrastructure to enable our People to increase their prosperity through the exchange of goods and services.  The greater the volume of goods and services that the East Africans sell to one another and to others, the greater their wealth is.

We are, here, also to consider the regional health sector investment priorities in line with our commitments to achieve a robust health coverage and healthy lives for the people of East Africa.
