Investment Policy Review - Uganda

image of Investment Policy Review - Uganda

Over the past decade, the Government of Uganda has reversed earlier policy and management failures that were destructive to the economy and the investment climate. With economic fundamentals restored, investor and donor confidence have grown. The need for Uganda to continue the momentum of recovery towards sustainable development is the central message of this publication. Investment Policy Review discusses foreign direct investment (FDI) trends and the improved economic and investment climate, which have placed Uganda as one of the front runners for inward FDI. Reviews the policy and operational framework for FDI and considers opportunities for FDI in utilities, infrastructure and financial services. It also provides an eight-point action plan on investment promotion and highlights priority actions to attract FDI.



Main conclusions

In recent years Uganda has made great strides in improving economic conditions and the investment climate. The rew a rd has been a revival of inward FDI flows, led by restitution and privatization programmes, which have been among the highest in Africa. This is cause for satisfaction. But challenges remain if recent FDI flows are to be sustained let alone accelerated.
