SGR is unfolding a new chapter in Local Content. It is encouraging cement and steel manufacturers to tap into the opportunities that come with a $2.3bn project.
They are meeting with CEOs of Insurance companies to discuss the same. Our local content policy is that 40% of services and materials required for SGR, should be provided by local companies. This was signed in the agreement with the Contractor, China Harbor Engineering Company. It was also agreed that for every 10 SGR workers, 9 must be Ugandans.
They confirmed that they shall enforce this to ensure that Ugandans gain.
