I am delighted to extend a personal invitation to attend the 14th UK-Africa Summit, specifically focusing on East Africa.

📅 Date: 6 September 2024
📍 Venue: The Mayfair Hotel, London

Established in 2010 as the “Uganda-UK Convention” and now rebranded as the UK-East Africa Summit, this prestigious event has become pivotal in promoting economic empowerment and sustainable development across East Africa. Initially focused on Uganda, it has expanded to serve as a crucial hub for international trade and cooperation in the region.

-Keynote address-

Rt. Hon.

T. Tayebwa

13th annual UK-Uganda Convention

Rt. Hon. Tayebwa conveyed a powerful message about Uganda’s resilience, particularly through the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting the country’s stable economy and its ability to continue thriving despite closed borders. He assured investors of a secure and conducive environment for investment, referencing Uganda’s remarkable recovery and stability post-independence, and the return of properties to Asians who lost them during tumultuous times.
