Ugandan Businesses to Partner With Italy Counterparts

The Ugandan businesses will have a chance to network with those [businesses] in Italy when the two sides meet from Dec.2 to 7 in Italy.

The Uganda Investment Authority in partnership with the ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives are organising a business mission (visit) to Italy that will see Ugandan capable companies participate.

Tom Buringuriza, the deputy executive director for the UIA told participants at the mission's preparatory workshop on Nov. 6 in Kampala that the mission is aimed at strengthening business relationships between the two countries. Buriguriza said Italy is one of the developed countries in the world specialising in different sectors and that Uganda, being a developing country, has a lot to learn from it [Italy].

The Prime Minister of Uganda, Amama Mbabazi, will lead a business delegation of ministers, representatives of government agencies and Ugandan companies to Italy.

The sectors at hand include agriculture/agro-processing, tourism, information and communication technologies, manufacturing, infrastructure and energy, oil and gas among others.
