New Vision To Be Merged With Uganda Printing

Full list Of Govt. Agencies Merged And Retained

The New Vision Printing and Publishing Company will soon be merged with Uganda Printing and Publishing Company.

Both government entities have been operating independently with the former posting profits and offering public shares while the later has for quite some time been operating at losses.

This could be the underlying reason why government policy makers and planning specialists have deemed it necessary to merge the two since they largely offer the same service of printing.
