This publication was authored by: Jesse Mugero

Abstract / Summary

The Government of the Republic of Uganda in an effort to regulate major key players in the Sugar industry has tabled before Parliament the Sugar Bill 2016. Although the Sugar industry has been in existence in Uganda since 1920, the legislation that was in place at the moment such as the Sugar (control) Act of 1948 and the Sugar Cess Act of 1957 are currently no longer able to propel the Sugar industry to stability and development.
