Good evening,

It is a pleasure to be with you this evening for yet another informal Uganda Bankers' Association Dinner.

Mark Twain once remarked that "a man's character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation". You can tell from the last couple of informal dinners that I am happy with the progress we have made as the Supervised Financial Institutions (SFIs) sector over the last quarter.

But before I reveal the reasons for my happiness, I thank the Managing Director of KCB Bank Uganda Limited for hosting us this evening. I am grateful to the organisers of this informal dinner for the wonderful experience.
