Speaker Kadaga launches CPC Website

The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has launched the Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference official website detailing information about the upcoming event to be held in Kampala, Uganda.
The 64th CPC will be hosted by the Uganda Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association from 22 to 29 September 2019.
Kadaga said that the website, www.cpa2019.org will facilitate interaction with delegates who will attend the conference, as well as act as a one-stop centre for key information about the conference and the country.
“The website has been designed to facilitate registration of participants, visa application and to be the source of need to know facts about the conference,” said Kadaga.
Speaker Kadaga, who is the CPC President Designate 2018 to 2019, said that Uganda was proud to host the conference again, which was last held in 1967.
Kadaga called on the guests expected to attend the conference to take time to explore Uganda’s tourism sites and enjoy the country’s hospitality, adding that potential sites to visit have been highlighted on the CPC website.
“Uganda is gifted by nature and I would like to encourage our visitors to come in at least two days before or stay an extra three days so that they can get time to experience the tourism we have to offer,” Kadaga added.
The Speaker commended the CPA Uganda Branch chaired by Hon. Jalia Bintu for the work and efforts being put in to prepare for the event and also commended the Clerk to Parliament and her team for developing the interactive website.
Jalia Bintu assured visitors of safety while attending the conference and touring the country.
The event was attended by among others, the chairperson of the media and publicity sub-committee of the 2019 CPC, Hon. Paul Amoru, Members of Parliament, the Clerk to Parliament and senior members of staff of Parliament.
The 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference that is preceded by the 63rd session that was held in Dakar, Bangladesh in 2017 will be premised on the theme ‘Adaption, Engagement and Evolution in a rapidly changing Commonwealth’.
