ROSA Whitaker, the Whitaker Group chief said on Friday, Apparels Tri-Star Uganda Limited was one of best initiatives doing well under AGOA.
She was touring the factory with an Asian trade delegation.
â€œTri-Star started at a low pace, but they have highly picked up. Their contribution can not be ignored,â€ Whitaker said. She lauded Tri-Star boss Vellupillai Kananathan for promoting the initiative.
Kananathan said he did not mind about Parliament criticism because MPs were doing their work.
â€œMy concern is how to create more factories and employment. MPs have their own rights, but we have to cooperate. I am sure we are going to work as brothers and sisters to develop the industry,â€ he said.
He said he had commitment with Government â€œand my concentration is to increase capacity to fully exploit the AGOA initiative. We have a huge demand but our capacity is less.â€
He said everybodyâ€™s concentration should be to increase capacity.
