Will Uganda finally get an export promotion fund?
A Shs500 billion Export Fund has been mooted today at the 2nd Annual Exporters Conference here in Kampala, aimed at supporting the supply and readiness for the market side.
This came after several exporters highlighted certification and standards for various agriculture-related products as well as the outright absence of extension services so much needed for enhancing output.
The anticipated Export Fund, if at all it materialises, it is anticipated would support Uganda double its current export returns of just $3.5B or 10 Trillion shillings over the mid-term.
