From a wide range of “to get involved” in depending on your major or expertise, construction is one of the best investment opportunities in Uganda. Many public infrastructures are demanded and the only people who can deliver them are those in this kind of service providing. Take it from me, if your company delivers quality, you will get onboard faster and get lots of contracts just like the like of Roko construction, R.C.C, Spencon and many others are doing.

Consultants and consulting service providers are well known when it comes to what they offer. Both governments, businesses and individuals at some point require the expertise of consultants.

Or do you know the percentage of people who are involved in the importation of goods including machinery, vehicles, items and etc from abroad to Uganda? If you really know what to, trust me this kind of investment will help you reach your target, of course making money.
Business owners want to do business with clearing and forwarding companies who do good and quality work in addition to delivering in time. Be vehicle or machinery importation and clearing, goods or items, investing in this and setting up a well managed logistics company is what you need.
#4 Investment opportunity – Agriculture with Fisheries inclusive
Back in the days, many people used to enjoy the BIG fish caught from the national lakes. But as of today, many are resorting to small ones including the “mukene type”. But have you ever wondered why? I asked a friend and he told me that the BIG fish is always exported since it is where high returns are compared to local markets. You can invest in fish export or local market supply. Besides, you can even farm your ow fish for more returns now that fish laws are tough on lakes.
Additionally, Uganda being naturally gifted has an advantage of seasons. Be millet, soy, sorghum, coffee, cassava and etc, those foods are highly on demand both local and international. Investing in agriculture with fisheries included is an opportunity which one can’t miss. The reason, high returns coupled with un-ending demand. You can invest in agriculture for export or local supply. Trust me on this, you will earn like a “Mugaga”.
