THE Uganda Investment Authority and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation have created a platform that will help small-and-medium enterprises access markets worldwide.

The platform, Sub-contracting and Partnership Exchange, is an online database through which SMEs will be profiled and linked to large domestic and multinational companies.

Patrick Bitature, the authority’s chairman, explained that different sectors had been selected for the pilot phase of implementation.

These include the metal processing, metal fabrication, plastics industry and industrial services.

He pointed out that the pilot operation would start in Kampala before spreading out.
