NAM SUMMIT: What It Means To Be a Courtesy Minister

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Uganda is set to to host 1000s of delegates from across the world who are coming to attend two important summits all set to take place in Kampala at the Munyonyo Convention Centre.

The Non-Alligned Movement starts this Monday 15th to 20 and will draw delegates from over 120 countries who will convene to discuss, way forward on several key issues of international importance and Uganda will hold chairmaship of the NAM until 2027 as the next host will be announced from the Kampala summit.

Uganda will also host another important summit dubbed the G77+China summit which will also happen in the same venue but on separate dates from 21st- 23rd January 2024.

Now for every visiting president, he or she will be assigned a courtesy minister, a practice which is established world over. Courtesy minister means that minister who the president as the principal host assigns to look after, guide and take care of that visiting president.


That courtesy minister is tasked to be a go between or link between the host president and the guest. This courtesy minister is supposed to be available to that visiting president 24/7 for as long as the guest remains in Uganda, they have to live in the same hotel and travel to the same places in the same vehicle in the country.

He or she works with the visiting entourage to determine which parts of the country for this case Uganda the visiting principal goes out to see and visit for tourism and recreation purposes.

Whatever that visiting president decides to do while in that host country (Uganda), has to be done in consultation with the assigned courtesy minister who also benefits from the resultant networking opportunities.

They’re high chances that handlers of that visiting president and key members of their entourage become lifetime contacts for that courtesy minister if he or she impresses the visiting president who might reciprocate by making available several life changing opportunities for that courtesy minister assigned to him or her depending on how the two connect.
