Uganda Market Report

Sunbird’s 2017 Uganda market report is the first in a series to complement our reports on Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zambia. 

Uganda is entering an exciting period of its development. The prospect of oil and the windfall that accompanies it will fuel an exiting future. Having recently concluded an election, Uganda offers an array of opportunities through its young and rapidly growing population and its fledging economy. 

This report seeks to outline the enormous potential that the country holds, while at the same time drawing attention to the challenges of doing business in the Ugandan market. Inevitably there are numerous hard lessons for any investor in African markets to learn and this report aims to provide a pragmatic guide to navigating the Uganda-specific risks. 

The emergence of Uganda’s potential will be affected by a myriad of factors and this report selects the most important in terms of politics, economics, demographics and infrastructure to provide a balanced overview of the country as a whole. We hope that it provides valuable insight into the excellent opportunities that Uganda has to offer.
