KAMPALA – The Registrar General of the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) has on Friday hosted a breakfast meeting with media editors and journalists to enhance their outstanding partnership and stress the critical role the media has played in supporting URSB services.
The meeting was setup to introduce the core team of Top Management, launch the URSB Journal that will publicise Intellectual Property applications.
The Registrar General also used the opportunity to present her achievements since ascension to office in December 2020 and establish her first step towards establishing professional and mutually beneficial relations with the media.
Although the Registrar General meets the media more formally at the traditional press conferences during URSB activities, this meeting gave her the opportunity to discuss a number of important topics in a more informal setting.
