    Doing Business in Uganda: Panel discussion and Q&A


    As part of this year’s UK – Uganda Trade Summit, please join us for an in person briefing with key figures involved in developing more effective trade relations between the UK and Uganda, in partnership with the Uganda-UK Trade & Investment Convention and the Department for International Trade, Uganda.

    The Trade Summit is designed to forge new business deals, invest in bankable projects and reinforce economic relations between the UK and Uganda, including the East African Community.

    Uganda is one of the fastest growing countries in the world. The liberalisation of the economy in 1986 contributed substantially to Uganda’s accelerated economic growth. Uganda's economy rebounded strongly as domestic economic conditions improved following the easing of mobility restrictions during October 2021 to February 2022. Uganda has achieved an average GDP growth of 6.3% per annum for the last 30 years. the GDP is forecast to grow by 6% from 2019 to 2023, driven mainly by increased investment in value added activities in the agricultural sector, the services sector and ongoing government investment in public infrastructure.

    All sectors of the economy are fully liberised for investment. Uganda's comparatively strong public finances help to create lower risk and more stable business environment for foreign investors. In order to make it easier to do business in the country, Uganda has reduced the amount of bureaucracy needed to secure systems licenses and permits.

    As the economy continues to develop, Uganda's agricultural, construction, infrastructure, technology, and healthcare sectors present attractive potential opportunities for UK business and investment.
