By Alfred Wasike UGANDA is to send its first textile exports to the United States of America under the African Growth Opportunities Act (AGOA) in December 2002 or January 2003, the manufacturers have informed President Yoweri Museveni. Tri-Star Apparel Exports Limited chairperson Kumar Dewapura yesterday met Museveni at the Nakasero State House and told him that his company was progressing well and would start full-scale production in October. “President Museveni commended the efforts of the company in trying to enter the US market and said the government would extend to the company the necessary assistance to ensure that Uganda is able to export to North America,” a Presidential Press Unit statement issued by Mr. Venerato Keeya said yesterday.
