Small and medium Ugandan exporters have been asked to take advantage of new markets in the more integrated East African Community (EAC)
“The markets are huge; the EAC market is now bigger with the additional new markets like Goma in Congo which is still open for agricultural products and beauty products.
“We have been lucky that the Congolese people appreciate our products. What the traders need to do is improve more on the quality of goods you intend to export and this can only be done by good branding and packaging,” Amelia Kyambadde, the trade minister said last week.
She was speaking at the fourth market-linked alumni meeting.
