Uganda’s ICT sector has grown a lot over the past years, the estimate is at around 20% per year resulting in a GDP contribution of around 2.5%. This being the fastest growing and most competitive sector of the country has meant that the ICT skillsets have grown too, especially under the young population. It also resulted in that Uganda has seen an increase in demand for IT products and services, both nationally and internationally.
In this session we will talk about the importance of the IT/ITES industry in Uganda, as well as Uganda’s IT/ITES potential and opportunity in the African region.
