The Government of Uganda strives to promote private sector development and job creation through active participation in international trade agreements. However, planers and decision makers are aware that the benefits of these agreements to Uganda’s firms are not automatic.

Cognizant of the challenges and opportunities associated with Uganda’s participation in international trade agreements, the Private Sector Development Unit under the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives and with support from the International Growth Centre present a seminar on Trade Agreements for Private Sector Development. This event brings together commissioners from the Ugandan Government as well as high-level representatives from the private sector discussing recent research on Uganda’s participation in trade agreements and identifying policy actions that will allow the country’s private sector to leverage existing and future market opportunities.
