Top Ugandan executives to woo investors at UNAA meet in Dallas
Top executives of major government agencies are heading to the 27th Annual Uganda North American Association (UNAA) Convention to address the Ugandan Diaspora community.
They will talk to potential American investors about available investment opportunities in Uganda and the policies and strategies the government has developed to transform the country from a predominantly peasant economy into a middle income state as outlined in the Vision 2040.
The roundtable discussions will mainly focus on strategies to exploit the abundant natural resources and investment opportunities either privately or through public private partnerships, a statement issued by the UNAA Secretariat stated.
The convention will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel from September 4 to 6, 2015 under the theme “Better Together: Investing in Our Future through Education.”
These government agency experts will highlight their “respective strategic roles in implementing finance and tax policies, expanding the energy sector, promoting the tourism industry, supporting value addition to agricultural products, facilitating the construction, banking, and telecommunication industries to encourage a favorable investment climate that enhances viable private and public-private partnerships,” the statement said.
