The European Union is supporting Uganda reach its economic potential with interventions that prioritize the Europe-Africa Alliance on Sustainable Investments and Jobs.

The European Union is supporting Uganda reach its economic potential with interventions that prioritise the Europe-Africa Alliance on Sustainable Investments and Job.

This new approach is detailed in a strategic document, theĀ Jobs and Growth Compact for Uganda, a non-binding living document prepared by the EU Delegation and shared with the Government of Uganda and the private sector.

The document offers an analysis of the potential of job creation and value chain development and related obstacles, and a forward-looking response strategy in line with the four strands of the Africa-Europe Alliance (i.e. investment climate, de-risking, education and skills, market building).

Through the approach, the EU seeks to boost strategic investments to achieve job creation, notably for women and youth, by strengthening the private sector, supporting skills developments, improving business environment and investment climate and tapping into the potential of economic integration and trade.
