Hon. Evelyn Anite, the State Minister of Finance for Investment and Privatization, commended Uganda Free Zones Authority (UFZA) on the construction works so far done in developing the first public Free Zone at Entebbe International Airport.
She made the remarks while touring the Entebbe International Airport Free Zone (EIAFZ) on 19th April 2022. She said “An industrialized Uganda will actualize the welfare and development aspirations of all Ugandans. This is why government is committed to developing such infrastructure to facilitate export-oriented investment”
On completion, the Free Zone will have firms engaged in high value mineral processing activities, light manufacturing and agro-processing for export through Entebbe International Airport. This project is symmetrically aligned to the program objectives of the National Development Plan III.
