Attended the UK-Africa Investment Summit

Monday, January 20, 2020

Attended the UK-Africa Investment Summit at the Intercontinental Hotel -  in London hosted by British Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson.

I thank the Prime Minister for the invitation. Like I told him in our bilateral meeting, Uganda is ready to receive British investors, given the immense business opportunities in the Pearl of Africa.

We have greatly upgraded infrastructure to support investment. We have sufficient electricity, a skilled workforce, fair tariffs, good roads, etc. Opportunities exist in agriculture, services, tourism, dairy sector, ICT etc.

I am glad that in his speech, the Prime Minister indicated that our products, including Uganda's beef, would find its way onto the dining tables of post-Brexit Britain.

I agree with the Prime Minister that we must help fight climate change and limit use of coal. In Uganda, we are already working to save our wetlands, and I encourage all those occupying wetlands to leave.
