THE visiting project director of the confederation of Norwegian business and industry, Neil Christian Nokley, has said his country was interested in a joint partnership with Kampala City Council (KCC) in waste management in Kampala.
Nokley indicated the interest this week while meeting tourism, trade and industry minister Prof. Edward Rugumayo in the latter’s office in Kampala.
The Norwegian trade chief also said he would link the Norwegian Trade Council with the Uganda Export Promotion Board for the promotion of the quality and quantity of exports by the two trading bodies.
Nokley invited Rugumayo to lead a delegation of Uganda’s business community to Norway for more discussions on the business and investment opportunities available in the two countries.
Rugumayo stressed the importance of sticking to appropriate standards as a means of promoting trade and asked for technical assistance from Norway to build the capacity of the Uganda National Bureau of Standards.
He also invited Norwegian tourists to come to Uganda and enjoy the spectacular tourist attractions available in the country
The Norwegian ambassador to Uganda Tore Gjos and the executive director of FUE, Rosemary Ssenabulya accompanied Nokley.
The Norwegian confederation is currently supporting a three year project under the Federation of Uganda Employers (FUE) aimed at building the capacity of FUE.
Meanwhile Titus Kakembo writes that the Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (UNCC&I) eastern region representative Rose Okwi has urged traders in Kumi, Soroti, Kaberamaido and Katakwi districts to unite if they are to ably compete in the liberalised economy.
“There are players with bigger capital bases. It is time for us to identify how we can access credit in monetary institutions. The culture of trading alone should be abandoned,” she said.
The workshop at Soroti Hotel was organised by dfcu Bank in a bid to share experinces.
