The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has called for the increased efforts towards raising awareness about the opportunities provided by the African Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA).
The Speaker was addressing journalists about the AGOA exhibition slated for May 14 and 15th at Parliament.
Kadaga adds though, that it is not enough for Ugandans to simply know how to enjoy the benefits provided by AGOA but they should also be deliberate on improving the quality of their products to be able to compete favourably on the American market.
Meanwhile, the chairperson of the AGOA Exporters’ Association of Uganda, Meg Hilbert Jaquay emphasizes that for as long as Ugandans undertake a complete value chain for accepted products, they should be assured of market linkages.
