Ambassador Bakker said the new round of funding was built on the success of the previous projects which have attracted both Dutch agricultural expertise and companies to Uganda.
"The projects have contributed to the development of agribusiness in Uganda and brought in more Ducth companies. The response has been very positive," he stated.
