Object in uniform circular motion is moving around the perimeter of the circle with a constant speed and while the speed of the object is constant, its velocity is changing . The direction is always directed tangent to the circle

To my question . Velocity vector at particular point A is tangent to the circle

Doesn't velocity vector at particular point show the current direction and speed an object has ?

Or does velocity vector at particular point show the direction in which the velocity vector had to point in order for the object to reach that particular point A on a circle ( in which case velocity vector at point A in reality already has different direction ) , or does it show where the velocity vector has to point in order for object to move to next (nearest) point on circle ?

thank you
