Doing Business with Uganda

At the Embassy, we work closely with Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism and inward investment.

Irish Business Network Uganda

The Embassy has encouraged the development of an Irish business community network in Uganda for a number of years, as part of a wider programme of work being undertaken at the Embassy in support of the implementation of the Government's Policy on International Development, and the Africa Strategy.

The 'Irish Business Network Uganda' was formally instituted at a business breakfast at the Ambassador's Residence in December 2012, and a LinkedIn group was set up in January. The main objectives of the Irish Business Network are to:

  • Create networking opportunities to support the growth of Irish business in Uganda
  • Provide opportunities for Irish business to share their experience of working in Uganda and help the entrance of new Irish businesses into the Ugandan market
  • Grow business links between Uganda and Ireland.

The IBN is committed to hosting regular meetings. These may include outside speakers addressing the group, activites on specific sectors and themes, and networking  events with other Embassies and business associations in Uganda. The IBN also works to ensure a specifically Irish flavour to our meetings, which it hopes will help people create a strong network of business contacts.
