President Yoweri Museveni has emphasised the importance of devising means through which more investors can be attracted to come and do business in Uganda.


Museveni was addressing the opening session of the two-day fourth phase of the Presidential Investors’ Round Table at State House Entebbe.

He said the seemingly productive activities of the economy are only transport and restaurants, but not the manufacturing sector.

Museveni said the inability to manufacture our own goods leads directly to the challenge of job creation.

The President commended Uganda’s development partners and consultants for their contribution to the development of the economy over the years.

He urged government technocrats to cultivate and treasure good working relations with the development partners to tap into the free and valuable advice they offer.
