PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni on Monday commissioned the second Apparel Tri-Star plant which will employ 800 more people and increase the country’s ability to add value to cotton exports, company officials said.
“We should stop exporting raw materials but rather value-added products. We are even spoiling ecology by exporting timber for making furniture in Europe,” said Museveni who was accompanied by Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe and Kenya’s Mwai Kibaki.
Tri Star managing director, Vellupulai Kananathan said the Bugolobi plant had an annual wage bill of sh2.4b.
“The commissioning of this second factory will create 800 new jobs for Ugandans. This will therefore increase our wage bill to approximately sh3.4b per annum,” he said.
Kananathan said Tri- Star would set up a spinning mill within the premises so as to implement the president’s vision of adding value to local cotton.
