In his opening Remarks, Uganda's High Commissioner to UK also accredited to Ireland, Amb. Julius Peter Moto lauded the Ugandan Diaspora for their contribution to national development, continued support and participation in all Mission events.

He underscored the important innovations, for better service delivery through electronic services, by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and urged participants to have confidence in their websites/portals while applying for the services.

The High Commissioner called upon Ugandan Diaspora associations to continue engaging the High Commission in their activities highlighting that this is one of the ways most issues can be addressed.

Amb. Moto further urged all Ugandans in the diaspora, regardless of their political affiliation, to recognize the positive developments in Uganda and spread a message of peace and tolerance.

The interaction was also addressed by a community leader, Mr. Emmanuel Tatwangyire who thanked the Mission for the initiative and briefed on the Ugandan Diaspora Foundation which is aimed at improving their economic empowerment and wellbeing. He urged the Government to enable Ugandans in the Diaspora to vote and participate in the political processes of the country.

The Ugandan diaspora raised several questions on services provided by the Mission which were responded to by respective staff.
