Uganda is open for your business - Business Delegation in April 2023

The Danish Embassy in Uganda and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council are pleased to invite your company to participate in this 2023 agro-business delegation to Uganda.

Uganda is one of Africa’s most stable and open countries with ambitious growth targets and an agri-business sector full of opportunities. This delegation visit will enable Danish companies to meet local key partners and potential customers, display their products and services, and gain first-hand knowledge about the Ugandan agribusiness industry and market.

Key aspects of Ugandan agribusiness:

  • The agricultural sector in Uganda accounts for a significant part of the country’s GDP and export earnings. With the agricultural sector employing approximately 70% of population, the sector plays a crucial part for the country’s economy. 
  • Uganda is very close to its target of lower-middle-income status – partly through serious reform of the agricultural sector from subsistence farming to commercial farming. The sector is now more is competitive and profitable. 
  • Urbanisation is high, the middle class is growing and demand for agricultural production is increasing.
  • All of the above offer great opportunities for Danish companies. The demand for high quality production and processing equipment, cold-chain facilities, packaging and storing facilities is high, and the need for quality control remains a challenge for Ugandan agricultural exports.

The delegation is open to participation from companies working within the agribusiness industry, e.g.:

  • Food technology and food solutions
  • Food processing technology
  • Agricultural materials
  • Agro-services, machinery, equipment
