The 64th CPC conference was hosted by the CPA President-Designate (2018-2019), Rt Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, Speaker of the Parliament of Uganda.

Uganda’s Speak Resort Munyonyo was the host venue for this conference meetings as well as essential support offices.

Delegates also toured and had various excursions in different regions, with delegates indicating their areas of preference for visit, during registration.

The annual flagship event brought together over 500 Parliamentarians, parliamentary staff and decision-makers from across the Commonwealth for the unique conference and networking opportunity.

The CPC offered the prospect of the coming together of the CPA’s global membership to address the critical issues facing today’s Parliaments.

With the ever-increasing focus on greater scrutiny of Parliamentarians and the overall public trust deficit in Parliaments, the CPA’s annual conference offered the opportunity for Members to benefit from professional development, supportive learning and the sharing of best practice with colleagues from Commonwealth Parliaments together with the participation of leading international organisations.

The main conference theme for the 64th CPC was: ‘Adaption, engagement, and evolution of Parliaments in a rapidly changing Commonwealth’.

The last time Uganda hosted the CPC was in 1967. The infrastructure and the population may have changed in the recent years, but Uganda’s beauty and hospitality remains the same.

According to the Uganda Tourism Board, Uganda is positioning as MICE destination and is working to make the country as ready as possible to host some of the biggest events and meetings around the world.
