About Uganda-UK Convention (investment Forum)
The Ugandan UK Convention, a Trade and Investment Forum has now become firmly established as an annual event in the UK.
The forum brings together experts, business leaders, professionals and representatives from prominent organisations based in Uganda, the UK and internationally. Delegates have access to up-to-date 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 session and hear about the realities of doing business in Uganda.
The 2014 programme has a demanding, interesting and varied agenda over the course of the day, with keynote addresses, panel discussions and break-out networking sessions involving government and officials from the private sectors, prominent Ugandan (Africa) entrepreneurs, private equity funds, leaders and Pan-African development institutions.
A key focus of the forum is expressly designed to support the country’s efforts to attract foreign direct investment into Uganda and paint a candid and contemporary picture of the nation's regulatory, business and investment climate.
Also, the forum seeks to inform and update the investors and business community in Europe of the vast potential for investment that Uganda offers to both the domestic and international community, while highlighting priority sectors for investment.
We hope you will find a wealth of experience and knowledge represented at this conference, and take advantage of this space to share ideas, talents and resources.
