Women contribute around 50% of GDP and comprise 39% of businesses with registered premises. Yet their businesses remain small and employ fewer workers.

The GGA identified specific legal and administrative barriers to investment that have a gender dimension and suggested that Uganda could gain as much as 2% growth per annum by addressing gender inequalities.
