Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), with support from USAID and ALP Advocates, has conducted a comprehensive week-long training program on public policy advocacy and lobbying with member business associations at the 4-Points By Sheraton Hotel in Kampala.

The private sector-tailored-training focused on fortifying the nation's business environment and augmenting the policy-influencing capabilities of private sector apex bodies.

While delivering her remarks, the PSFU Vice Chairperson Ms. Sarah Kagingo said that the Private Sector Apex bodies such as Uganda Chamber of Mines and Petroleum, KACITA, among others were introduced to fundamental principles of public policy, political economy, and tools for influencing and enhancing the advocacy capacity of members to promote a business-conducive environment by leveraging evidence-based advocacy and formulating actionable plans

PSFU Chief Membership Officer Mr. Francis Kisirinya appreciated the support from partners such as USAID under the Feed the Future Initiative and ALP Advocates for championing capacity development in the field of public policy and advocacy in the private sector.
