 UK Convention’s Flashback: Hon. Maria Kiwanuka, Uganda’s Minister of Finance keynote presentation at the 2nd UK Convention

To keep up the momentum from last year’s successful 1st Convention, this year we are
focusing on particular sectors, which include investing in the agriculture, real estate, fi –
nancial sector, discussing the imminent introduction of the Diaspora bond as well as
exploring all facets and benefi ts offered by the bond to Diasporans.

Uganda has been pursuing a deliberate Policy to stimulate investments and enhance the expansion of economic activities. To this end, numerous opportunities now abound in several sectors, such as:
1. Agriculture and Agro Processing (Crops and Livestock);
2. Energy for Rural Transformation;
3. Tourism (Resorts, Hotels and Game/Forest parks);
4. Packaging, Printing and Publishing;
5. Services (Information & Communication Technology [ICT], Finance, Education and Medical); etc.

Uganda is the Pearl of Africa, with a population of 33 million warm people, excellent climatic conditions, fertile soils and beautiful scenery all over. It is also important to note that Uganda is a stable and fully liberalized economy, which has maintained an annual average growth rate of approximately 6.5% in the last 20 years.
