Why register a .UG domain?

Uganda is a country located in East Africa. The nation is a popular tourist destination because of its diverse wildlife, waterfalls and protected gorilla sanctuaries. Agriculture is the country’s main economic activity and more than half of the inhabitants rely on farming as a source of income. Uganda has large reserves of natural gas and crude oil and a big percentage of this wealth is not yet explored. International companies can capitalize on this opportunity and make billions of dollars in revenues.

Why invest in Uganda?  Uganda is an attractive destination for big investments because the local government is committed to protecting the private sector not to mention the country has already achieved a fully liberalized economic system.  Another reason to expand business in Uganda is the availability of trainable and inexpensive labor force. The people are qualified and able to work in many different types of industries.
