President Yoweri Museveni over the weekend held a discussion with the Malaysian Transformation Minister, Hon. Dato Sri Idris Jala, who delivered a lecture at the ongoing leaders retreat at Kyankwanzi.
Jala’s presentation to focused on how a third world country can move to a middle-income country using Malaysia as a case study.
Among key issues, he said having good plans alone is not enough.
Governments should endeavour to implement these plans, Jala advised.
He said there must be prioritization because a government cannot deal with everything at the same time lest it fails in everything.
Budgets must be fashioned to give priority to areas government considers are important, he continued.
“I totally agree with his submissions,” President Yoweri Museveni who hosted the minister later said.
“These are the things I have been talking about and we must implement them if Uganda is to become a middle-income country,” Museveni added.
