The Ugandan Convention in UK is sustaining its acclamation as one of the prime annual Ugandan events in Europe. This year, it is attracting the most powerful delegates from Uganda, East African community headquarters and the House of Lords, not to mention the private sector.
We are delighted that Mr Benon will join other powerful speakers including Her Royal Highness Sylvia Nagginda Nnabagereka Queen of Buganda, Rt. Hon. Dr Ruhakana Rugunda, Uganda Prime Minister, Lord Verjee, Lord Popat, Mr. Ismail Ahmed, the Founder and CEO of WorldRemit, Mr Ian Harrison, UK Trade & Investment-Regional Director, Nuradin Osman, MD, Africa & Middle East for AGCO (Massey Ferguson) and many more.
Dr. Benon Mutambi holds a Ph.D in Economics and is the Chief Executive Officer of Electricity Regulatory Authority, Uganda. He has rich experience in the areas of monetary policy, growth economics, regional integration and energy regulation having worked for nine years in the central bank and nine years in an independent energy regulatory agency.
Mr Mutambi has done a lot of research in the areas of energy pricing and design of feed-in tariffs, debt sustainability, financial liberalisation, savings, investment and economic growth.
Mr Mutembi will share some really important information about the new energy regulations that came into effect in Uganda recently. This is particularly relevant for people intending to invest in the energy sector. Aside from his speaking engagement at the Convention, Mr Mutambi will be available to answer any queries from investors who need to be kept abreast of these new regulations in order to maximise the successful implementation of their projects in the energy sector.
Renowned as having the highest level of both Ugandan and UK governmental and business speakers, the Convention will this year address the essential need to know topics most prevalent to East Africa (Uganda), such as opportunities within the priority sectors of infrastructure development, Power & Energy, Health-care, Agri-business, Real Estate, and financial markets.
The 2015 programme has a demanding, interesting and varied agenda over the course of the day, with keynote addresses, panel discussions and break-out networking sessions involving government and officials from the private sectors, prominent Ugandan (Africa) entrepreneurs, private equity funds, asset managers, bankers, leaders and Pan-African development institutions. Additionally, a Project Centre will be in place to enable bilateral meetings and group discussions, with on hand support to facilitate business deals.
Investors have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one meetings with high level government officials including the Prime Minister to discuss potential projects and investment opportunities on how to use Uganda as a hub to access an expanding market of nearly 374m consumers from the EAC and SADC Markets.
Exhibitors have a unique platform to enhance their corporate profile and expand their market by showcasing their brand, products and services to a large receptive audience of potential customers and decision makers.
Networking and Break-out sessions enable important networking opportunities to forge new partnerships, explore investment opportunities, gain valuable insights, and exchange contact details with key influencers.
After Party and culture musical extravaganza. The convention culminates in a spectacular after party, giving all attendees including VIPs, an opportunity to relax, unwind, mingle and enjoy the rich cultural diversity of Uganda. We are proud to have Her Royal Highness Sylvia Nagginda, and The Prime Minister both avid supporters of the convention, as our chief guests. Celebrating cultural exchange and diversity and to promote community cohesion will be the guiding theme as the gala showcases and helps to preserve Uganda’s cultural traditions. This event is particularly important to the Diaspora, educating the new generation through a variety of singing and dancing acts and teaching them the importance of reconnecting with their roots. Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated towards the construction of the Ekisaakaate Kya Nnabagereka Camp in Ssisa, Wakiso District, Entebbe Road.
We urge you to make every effort to participate in this important event in London on the day as we continue our efforts to promote Uganda as an increasingly pivotal destination for investment.
