Ten Ugandan hotels will receive certification by December, a development that will assist in their official classification and star grading by next year.
Gilbert Arinaitwe, the acting Head Systems Certification at Uganda National Bureau of Standards, says the process that began before the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2007 is nearing completion. Arinaitwe says that for the past two years the bureau has been conducting training with dozens of hotels with the hope that they will standardize their operations and receive certification that will grant them international recognition.
