Trade and Investment

Under trade and Investment promotion, various Missions have been involved in a range of activities including the following:
The Missions abroad continue to participate in a number of Trade Fairs in selected cities in the respective areas of accreditation including China's bi-annual Fares.

The introduction of selected products in key shopping stores in selected cities is a good activity by all our Missions which has seen Ugandan products such as coffee, tea and spirits being introduced and sold in some major supermarkets in foreign capitals.

The many bilateral meetings between our Missions and Uganda's partner countries on implementation of market access offers remain critical for Uganda. This on-going endeavour by Missions that also leads to engagement of trading partners on various fronts is welcome and encouraged. Uganda looks forward to seeing key business personalities abroad with chain stores travel to Uganda for business surveys and signing Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) with Ugandan companies to market Ugandan products in various countries.

Uganda thanks its Missions abroad which continue to carry out investment drive in various Missions, studying the trends and effectively participating in all trade negotiations at the multilateral level, that is Geneva for World Trade Organisation (WTO), Brussels for Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) with Europe and bilaterally with various countries.

The Ministry has identified communication as a vital tool in implementing Uganda's foreign policy and has embarked on designing and implementation of an Integrated Communication solution to effectively link itself with Missions abroad and other key stakeholders including other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

The linking of the Ministry website to its Missions and all other Government websites is to ensure that information reaches our intended visitors, tourists and importers of Ugandan products.
