Reduced cost of doing business will increase our competitiveness, attract more FDI, increase jobs and export earnings and ultimately household incomes.

Other strategies to reduce the cost of transportation of goods and services in the NRM Government’s strategy/manifesto include:

• The 1,724km Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), starting with the 273km Malaba-Kampala route;

• 40-45km of a Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area Light Rail Train System (GKMA LRT)

• Construction of the Bukasa Inland Port on Lake Victoria;

• Ongoing tarmacking of 18 roads (1,375 km);

• Tarmacking of 17 roads (825.3km) that are under procurement to be started by 2022;
