Small-scale businesses are concerned that the World Bank Doing Business Report does not capture their challenges and, therefore, reform programmes like business licensing may exclude them.John Walugembe, the executive director of Uganda Small Scale Industries Association (USSIA), has pointed out the gaps in the doing business parameters, citing the registration process as an example of the inadequacy in the process.During discussions held at the UMA Conference Hall, Walugembe also noted that the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) is making business registration expensive for small-scale operators, who comprise over 90% of the country’s businesses.“If it takes 15 days to register a business, it will not be easy for a small-scale entrepreneur upcountry,” noted Walugembe, adding that USSIA’s research shows that only 11% of small-scale manufacturing businesses are registered with URSB. Read more
