Players in Uganda’s agro-tourism sector have accused the government of sidelining them in preparations for the forthcoming Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit.

This comes a day after the government unveiled the official program for the summit expected to draw over 70 heads of state and delegations.

Ugandans have been tipped to benefit from the highly anticipated NAM summit, expected to commence on January 15, 2024, and end on the 20th at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

However, agro-tourism experts are concerned that the sector has not been promoted as being part of the wider tourism industry.

Bart Kakooza, the proprietor of Media Plus Limited, is one of the players who says they have completely been ignored.

“Regarding this NAM summit, Uganda is so disorganized that they even didn’t think about getting like us who can show the delegates how coffee and matooke are grown. I don’t think I’m getting anything out of this NAM [summit],” he said.

Agro-tourism involves agricultural-based operations or activities that bring visitors to a farm or ranch.

According to the official program for the Summit released yesterday, all activities are concentrated in hotels around Kampala City.
