The Annual CEO Forum is an exclusive invitation-only forum. The Forum was first held in 2009, in response to the financial meltdown of 2008, as a platform for the captains of industry to debate and re-think the economy, to drive mutually beneficial partnerships to address each other’s woes, and to become catalysts for action and change. Over the years, the CEO Forum has become a platform for Corporate Uganda to engage government and policymakers and share insights on social-economic transformation.
