On 22nd February 2022, the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Hon Monica Musenero with her team held a meeting with National Enterprise Corporation (NEC) management led by the Deputy Managing Director-Hon Maj Gen Innocent Oula at NEC Headquarters in Bugolobi.
The purpose of the meeting was to engage NEC in the construction of the downstream facilities for vaccine manufacturing in Uganda.
Uganda is in advanced stages of vaccine manufacturing. It is now in animal trials preparing for clinical trials. The construction of downstream facilities is therefore timely.
The Minister informed the meeting that NEC’s record in doing quality work and executing projects in record time is the reason her delegation came to NEC.
She expects NEC to construct an internationally accreditable facility that will produce very high level diagnostics. The first one to be produced by Ugandans in the country.
Maj Gen Innocent Oula assured the Minister of NEC’s commitment in doing quality work and delivering the project in time.
