Event Management:

Promoting Business & Investment

Uganda is located in eastern Africa, west of Kenya, south of South Sudan, east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and north of Rwanda and Tanzania. It is in the heart of the Great Lakes region, and is surrounded by three of them, Lake Edward, Lake Albert, and Lake Victoria. This land linked position, gives the country a strategic commanding base to be a regional hub for trade and investment. Uganda enjoys pivotal trade partnerships that create a viable market for business.

  • Support Ugandan and UK businesses in bilateral trade, business and investment
  • Create a platform for trade, business and investment between Uganda and Europe (UK) and promote and facilitate access to trade opportunities in Uganda (East Africa) for Ugandan and European (UK) investors, including one-to-one meetings
  • Maintain a dialogue with business organisations who can promote trade opportunities in Uganda, including the Federation of Small Businesses, Chambers of Commerce, the Institute of Directors, the Confederation of British Industry and the City of London;
  • Promote Ugandan exports and identify export opportunities, so that the export earnings close the gap with the import demand and promote the transformation of Uganda from a current consuming nation into a producing nation. To this end, engage in close communication with the Ministry of Finance and Investment Authority in Uganda for advice and information.
  • Encourage investments in the key sectors, i.e. education, health, housing, sports, tourism and many more
  • Exhibit and celebrate the rich diversity of their cultural heritage and encourage Ugandans to be more active as ambassadors for Uganda’s culture – food, clothes, social life etc

  • Some of the achievements and impact of the Convention since its inception in 2010.
    1. So far over 7421 delegates have attended the Convention; more than 90 Ugandans relocated to Uganda, 57 companies from Uganda have showcased their services and 67 UK companies including SME by Diaspora have also exhibited at the Conventions.

Trade & Investment in Uganda

Uganda has been consistently drawing the highest FDI in East Africa, attracting between $250 – 300 million in FDI annually between 2010 and 2016 – largely due to its stable and consistent macro-economic policies, liberalized business environment, proximity as a logistics hub within the Great Lakes region and increased regional trade. British investors were particularly active, with 10 project commitments, followed by Dutch companies.
