A case for efficient legal and institutional frameworks for cross border railway development in the East African Community

Contributing to a Peace Economy in Northern Uganda  A Guide for Investors

Land is a major factor of investment in any part of the world, and a key element of production and development.  Land policy should therefore support investment.  Land for investment in the north of Uganda is available in plenty.  The people are also quite aware that the economy of the country is over 98% agro-based.  What we now refer to as commercial farming existed as far back as the late 1950s in Acholi sub-region.  Over 40 farmers ran large-scale farming in Acholi district from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s, for example.  It is only as aresult of the war that the region’s large-scale farmers lost their farm machineries and tools, abandoned their lands and spent all their incomes that could otherwise have been used to expand the economy.

Fertile Investments in Uganda’s Agriculture

Agriculture accounts for over 80% of Uganda’s labour force and for 27% of the country’s exports.  It is therefore a very important sector in Uganda’s growing economy as shown also by its contribution of 23.9% to the country’s Gross Domestic Product.  Those who invest in Uganda’s agriculture cannot therefore go wrong.  Investment is needed in five different sub-sectors of this economy sector, namely: crops, livestock, processing derivatives from livestock, fisheries and forestry.  In agriculture, as in other sectors of Uganda’s economy, investors are given special incentives. These include among others: duty-free tax import of plant and machinery, training expenditure as well as scientific expenditure at 100%, capital allowance on plant and machinery at 50 to 75%, etc.
