Uganda-Yiwu Chamber of Commerce Established
Under the guidance of the Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, more than 50 people from their home city of Yiwu do business in Uganda. Gathering together in its capital, Kampala, they recently witnessed the establishment of the Uganda-Yiwu Chamber of Commerce and the Economic, Trade, and Cultural Exchange Promotion Association.
There are broad prospects on cooperative development for Yiwu and Uganda. The Chamber of Commerce (Promotion Association) will play the role of an ambassador for non-governmental exchanges, actively recommend Yiwu’s markets and products to both businessmen and other consumers from Uganda through various channels, and sell more inexpensive but high-quality products to Uganda. Meanwhile, Yiwu businessmen in Uganda will also integrate Uganda’s high-quality products, transport local specialty goods to Yiwu’s market, and promote bilateral trade and economic development.
