“I am so grateful for having been invited by President Museveni into the country for medical tourism with the aim of establishing great investments in the health sector,” she noted, lauding President Museveni for creating the infrastructure necessary for any investment to thrive.
Lisa said that having been briefed on President Museveni’s Vision 2040 by Isaac Kigozi the Managing Director of East African Partners (EAP) a company that ushered her into the country, she opted for a fact finding mission but her findings have been extremely amazing.
“As I did my own research on Uganda, the infrastructure and culture, I found many of the amazing improvements that the President has done for his people.”
She also praised Mr. Museveni for involving women in leadership giving an example of Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
Lisa added that due to Uganda’s greatest export which is peace, the country has the potential to become the global health care tourism destination which will in turn boost the economy.
She observed that the health sector in Uganda has got all that it takes to support any investment given the readily available infrastructure and skilled human resource.
EAP Managing Director Isaac Kigozi appreciated Lisa for leading a group of dedicated investors that are ready and willing to boost Uganda’s health sector as well as diversify the economy.
“It’s our dream to turn Uganda into a global investment destination and with such groups coming into the country, the dream shall be achieved in no time. We however call upon all Ugandans to cherish and treasure the peace in the country and work towards maintaining it,” Kigozi said.
