Recently, manufacturing journalist and founder of the Manufacturing Media Consortium, Thomas R. Cutler met with Benita Bageire in Entebbe to discuss Uganda and Africa’s economic potential. Bageire is the co-founder and Managing Director of Albertine Oil and Gas Services LTD.
Cutler noted, “It is a dynamic time for Uganda’s role in manufacturing and global intralogistics.” Muhumuza Bageire interviewed Benita Bageire for the feature with LogisticsMatter magazine. Read the full interview here.
Benita Bageire shared, “Uganda is uniquely positioned to be a leader in manufacturing because we are land linked with Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and South Sudan. We are improving our waterways and will become the logistics hub for the region especially eastern DRC, South Sudan, and Rwanda. We export a vast amount of minerals from DRC and South Sudan; we will add value to these minerals.”
“There are plenty of opportunities here for both local and international investors. The US already has companies like Citibank, FedEx, General Motors, Caterpillar, Prudential, Marriott, and Sheraton operating in Uganda. There are plenty more opportunities for more American and international companies to invest,” added Benita Bageire.
