The theme for this year is ‘Turning growth Into Prosperity.’ The event will feature a fantastic line up of distinguished Speakers and Panellists from diverse businesses and organizations.
Uganda continues to record remarkable economic growth, and according to the World Bank has endured a GDP growth of 6.6 in 2014, and is one of the 10 fastest growing economies in Africa.
There has been much transformation in governance and in the general political atmosphere, giving potential investors greater confidence. In terms of available investment opportunities, Uganda has abundant natural resources, discovery of oil and also, infrastructure development is continuously opening more doors for potential investors.
The sharp rise in the middles-class is creating a robust demand for consumer goods, more so in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. All these attributes and more, have, and continue to place the country in the spotlight with regards to sustainable investments.
Renowned as having the highest level of both Ugandan and UK governmental and business speakers, this year we will be addressing the essential need to know topics most prevalent to East Africa (Uganda), such as opportunities within a range of sectors that include the priority sectors; infrastructure development, Power & Energy, Health-care, Agri-business, Real Estate, financial markets.
The 2015 programme has a demanding, interesting and varied agenda over the course of the day, with keynote addresses, panel discussions and break-out networking sessions involving government and officials from the private sectors, prominent Ugandan (Africa) entrepreneurs, private equity funds, asset managers, bankers, leaders and Pan-African development institutions. Additionally, a Project Centre will be in place to enable bilateral meetings and group discussions, with on hand support to facilitate business deals.
I therefore urge you to make every effort to participate in this important event and I look forward to meeting you in London on the day as we take the opportunity to continue our efforts to promote Uganda as an increasingly pivotal destination for investment.
