UDC has been instrumental in the provision of services to support the manufacturing sector. This is through setting up of infrastructure facilities that the private sector is unwilling to provide yet are essential in the manufacturing industry. For instance, Kalangala Infrastructure Services on Bugala Island; in which UDC has a 45.7% shareholding, provides water and road transport between Bugala Island and the mainland. This eases transportation of people, ferrying of raw materials such as oil palm and fish to the processing firms. These services would not have been possible without UDC intervention that has also seen the local population benefit.
