Dear Future US Partner,

The American Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with U.S. Mission Uganda, the third largest U.S. Embassy in Africa, invites you to partner with the most trusted business organization in the United States, The American Chamber of Commerce, and take advantage of exclusive promotional opportunities during the American Chamber of Commerce of Uganda’s upcoming Agribusiness Summit and Expo: “Generation AgriPreneur” to be held in Kampala, Uganda on April 22nd and 23rd 2015.

Why Africa?

Africa’s remarkable economic growth during the past decade was based on sustainable drivers of performance, including improvements in governance in civil societies and business associations like AmCham, as well as abundant natural resources. Real commercial opportunities exist in infrastructure and robust demand for consumer goods and services from a growing middle class. Challenges to investing in Africa remain, but investors who can overcome the challenges will find superior investment prospects.

Why Uganda?

– 5.7% economic growth
– 49% of its population is under age 15
– Growing middle class, with 10,000 additional resident foreigners expected in next 6 years
– Single Digit Inflation for 8 of the last 10 years
– Member of COMESA, with reach to a population of over 300 million
– 2nd largest Certified Organic farmer population per capita, just behind India
– 7,000,000 Farmer households, organized into hundreds of specialized farmer cooperatives and associations
– Duty and quota free access into the US (AGOA) and EU (EBA) markets
– Rich endowment of rainfall, soils, and favorable temperature range leading to TWO annual growing seasons

We are looking for game changers. Uganda needs your products, your services and your business acumen to grow its number one business sector: agriculture. From technology, to education, to infrastructure, to finance, there are many opportunities to buy and sell here in Uganda. Our farmers, “Agri-Preneurs,” and existing commercial agri-businesses are ready to buy your products and services if you have what they need to grow and expand their markets, increase their yield, and improve their bottom line; and they ready to sell their unique product offerings to you for your customers. It is win-win.

By actively participating in our two day event, you can expect to:

– Become part of our thriving American Chamber of Commerce Uganda, representing nearly 10% of the top producing companies in Uganda;
– Have immediate visibility with the U.S. Mission, including the U.S. Ambassador to Uganda, the Economic and Commercial Section, , USAID, and the rest of the U.S. Mission;
– Find complementary partners to engage in profitable joint ventures;
– Be immediately exposed to over 50 successful companies doing agribusiness in Uganda;
– Make contact with over 50 Ugandan farmer cooperatives and associations, from organic producers to meat and dairy to coffee, vanilla, millers and more;

Meet over 100 Agri-Preneurs looking for markets for their new ideas;
– Meet with our One Stop Center representatives from the Uganda Investment Authority;
– Meet top Ugandan policy makers from various ministries in Uganda;
– Visit one for the most beautiful places on earth, The Pearl of Africa.

The first step to doing business abroad is the face to face interaction with your stakeholders. There is no bigger event in Uganda than this one to do exactly that. Please review our attached White Paper and become involved as a sponsor, exhibitor and/or speaker. Your business deserves a look.

We will be following up with you by Dec 15th to confirm your attendance and participation and to get you information on travel discounts, and our more detailed agenda for visiting companies.
