In a bid to prepare for the hosting of the Non Alliance Movement and G77+ China Summits, Uganda has displayed her readiness to meaningfully contribute to the efforts of the global community in tackling shared challenges.

The hosting of the two major international summits is foreseen to boost Uganda’s trade through several hotels that will accommodate dignitaries from different countries across the globe, thus contributing towards the economic development of the country.

Lucy Nakyobe, the Chief Executive Officer of the organising committee of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and G77 summits, said that the membership of NAM and G77 is mixed and many countries are members of both.

She revealed that a lot of delegates are expected for the two summits and adequate preparations have been made, adding that so far, more than 30 major hotels with room capacity of over 7,000 for delegates have been setup in Kampala and Entebbe, as well as other hotels in tourist sites.

Nakyobe confirmed that the construction of a convention center is under way, and its completion is expected by August 2023.

The selected hotels have conference halls, distinct architectural designs, dignified locations with a breath-taking natural atmosphere from fresh aquatic life, and 24/7 transport as well as medical facilities.

The organising committee noted that the hotels will also profit from the summits by accommodating several delegates that will access hotel facilities and have a taste of Ugandan dishes, right from continental to other food, and also by providing transportation, which will in turn boost the economic development of the country since all that will be payable.

The hotels will gain an opportunity to be marketed by the delegates that will have benefited from the different services offered by several hotels, which will earn them significant international exposure, mainly in terms of boosting their financial status. As a result, this will open up room for Uganda on the global market and attract more tourists to the country, who in turn will seek accommodation from these hotels.

The summits will be held at Speke Resort Munyonyo, Kampala, in January 2024 under the theme “Deepening Cooperation for Shared Global Affluence” for the NAM, while the G-77 South Summit will be held under the theme “Leaving No One Behind.”

Uganda was admitted to the membership of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) at the Second Summit of Heads of State and Government, which was held from October 5–10, 1964, in Cairo, Egypt. This was in a period of only three years since the founding of the movement in Belgrade in 1961 and two years since Uganda attained her independence from the British on October 9, 1962. This paved the way for Uganda to be one of the forty-seven (47) Member States to attend the Summit.
