A section of Ugandan business comminity is set to widen its business scope into Pakistani following new interventions to boost economic ties between the two nations.


The Pakistani government has in bid to bolster trade and economic relations between Uganda and Pakistani laxed visa entry restrictions for Uganda traders entering Pakistan.

Amir Mohyuddin the Commercial Counselor, at the Pakistan High Commission echoed these concerns during his visit to Kampala last week.

The counselor who was in Kampala to promote the forth coming 9th Edition of the Expo Pakistan slated for February 26 to 1 March 2015 said boosting trade relations between Uganda and Pakistan is high on the agenda now.

Mohyuddin who also had talks with Olive Kigongo the Uganda Chamber of Commerce and Industry boss reechoed the opportunities of enhancing bilateral trade between Uganda and Pakistan. “Pakistan enjoys competitive advantage in a number of industrial sectors such as textiles, leather, pharmaceutical and agro machinery as well as light engineering goods,” said Mohyuddin.

He noted that all these sectors would be displayed at the forthcoming Expo. “Ugandan businessmen can benefit from the expo by sourcing their imports from Pakistan at competitive prices,” he told a meeting of Pakistan businessmen at Kati Kati restaurant in Kampala.

In her remarks Uganda National Chamber of Commerce president, Olive Kigongo, appreciated the pro-active approach of the Pakistan High Commission and stressed the need for enhancing linkages between the two countries. “I propose the holding of exchange visit between traders of the two countries as well as having a Pakistan single country exhibition in Kampala for promotion of Pakistan products,” said Kigongo.

She assured the commercial attaché of the need to help Ugandan businessmen and women secure business visas to facilitate trade.

Mohyuddin told the Pakistan nationals living in Uganda that his government would organize a trade sensitization seminar next month.
