Uganda – UK Investment Convention – to be held in London on 10 Sept 2016 at Troxy – London– promises to be the most timely and informative Uganda investment conference of the year.
The theme for this year is ‘Why Invest in Uganda Now?’. The event will feature a fantastic line up of distinguished Speakers and Panelists from diverse businesses and organizations across East Africa, including Prime Minister of Uganda, Sudhir Ruparelia, Chairman-The Ruparelia Group, Emmanuel Katogole, CEO – Cipla Quality Chemical, Dr. Simon Kagugube, Lord Popat, Uganda Trade Envoy, Eversto Kayondo, Chairman, KACITA Uganda, Omukama Solomon Gafabusa Iguru I and many more speakers will share how they have taken a regular company from obscurity to massive success.
The theme for the Forum could not have been timelier, as Uganda is enduring high economic growth. Despite the positive growth outlook, Africa still faces an annual funding deficit of $31 billion for electrical power alone, while some donor countries have been falling short of their international commitments. This is an indication of trade and investment opportunities to fill the deficit gap. And given the rapid growth of the Ugandan population—three-quarters of the population are below the age of 30 years—coupled with the fact that the youth are getting better educated through higher access to primary and secondary education, a stronger focus on job creation for this cohort of people cannot be overemphasized.
The Forum 2016 will therefore highlight key aspects of the following thematic discussion areas:
- What are the key opportunities available when venturing into this highly lucrative space
- What strategies, techniques and tools needed to succeed doing business in Uganda
- The role of Ugandan women in sustainable economic development
- Bilateral trade arrangements between UK and Uganda
- Increasing UK’s exports and attracting UK investment into Uganda
- Agribusiness in Uganda; food security and value addition
- Youth Entrepreneurship: Uganda’s key to prosperity for all
- Case studies and challenges doing business in Uganda
The focus on these issues will help provide a wider platform for stakeholder participation and emphasize the critical issues in each area.
Women and youth entrepreneurship and empowerment will be taken into consideration as cross-cutting issues in the discussion of all the areas mentioned above.
