Economic and Commercial Diplomacy

Uganda's Missions remain the lynch pin in promoting the country's Commercial (promotion of Tourism, Trade and Investment.) and Economic Diplomacy (external resource mobilisation and technology transfers).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has had to ensure that its officers undertake specialized training in trade negotiations, commercial, political and multilateral diplomacy among others to meet this challenge.

Given that Commercial Diplomacy is diplomacy with a commercial twist – diplomacy designed to influence foreign government policy and regulatory decisions that affect global trade and investment. Besides supporting trade negotiations and external resource mobilisation, MOFA and its 32 Missions abroad continue to carry out the various activities to promote Uganda as the best Investment destination, best tourist destination and a source of quality products to the outside markets as well as participating in all negotiations at the World Trade Organisations (WTO), the European Union and other forums.
