The panel shall discuss the steps that have been taken so far in an effort to digitize Uganda. These include Government initiatives such as digitally enabled public service delivery and other legislative/ regulatory measures such as the NIISP. The panelists shall also address the challenges and gaps in implementing such initiatives and policies.
