A. Develop tourist accommodation facilities 

One of the principal activities of NHIL is to develop demand-driven tourist accommodation and conference facilities in Uganda. NHIL does not engage in day to day running of these facilities.

B. To monitor leased/concessioned facilities

NHIL monitors its concessioned conference and accommodation facilities. The monitoring includes the following:

  • Ensuring that the concessionaire adheres to the concession agreement.
  • Ensuring that the concessionaire reports accurate revenues as these are the basis of the concession fees.
  • Ensuring that concession fees are collected on time.
  • Ensuring contractual compliance and that NHIL’s interests are taken care of throughout the concession period.
  • Ensuring that the leased facility is at all times well maintained by the concessionaire.
  • To keep the shareholder (Government) informed of the status of the business and ensure that the company’s strategic intent and operations are in line with Government policy and directives.
  • Ensure that the Government realises a profitable return on all investments held by NHIL.
