We have always taken pride in the fact that UCUK forum brings together experts, business leaders, professionals and representatives from prominent organisations based in Uganda, the UK and beyond.

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 macroeconomic 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.

The forum brings together experts, high profile business and government delegates from Uganda and UK, business leaders, Ugandans in the Diaspora, professionals and representatives from prominent organisations based in Uganda, the UK and beyond. Delegates have access to UpToDate information on the vast potential for investment that Uganda offers to both the domestic and international community. They can acquire business tips, obtain relevant literature on priority sectors for investment, take part in an interactive Q & A chat engagement with speakers and hear about the realities of doing business in Uganda.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1599064344714{background-color: #eaeaea !important;}”][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”33219″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Speakers | Panellists include:
