Trade and Industry Minister Dr Rob Davies

JOHANNESBURG, May 17 (ANA) - A group of 25 South African business people left today for Kampala, Uganda, to explore trade and investment opportunities in the agro-processing, capital equipment, energy and furniture sectors in the East African country.

The delegation will participate in an Outward Trade and Investment Mission to Kampala from 19-24 May.

The director of Basils Business Opportunities, Basil Phupha, will investigate opportunities for the export of agro-processing equipment to Uganda and the Central African region.

“Currently we are exporting to Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho and we are optimistic that we will soon add Uganda on our list as a result of this forthcoming mission," said Phupha.

Managing director of Cubicle Manufacturing Solutions, Susan Hadcroft, will be marketing her company’s products which include toilet and shower cubicles, lockers and benches for ablutions and changing rooms.

"We are hoping to meet people in the construction industry, including architects and quantity surveyors, who will recommend my products for procurement in forthcoming commercial building projects such as offices, malls, universities, hospitals, warehouses and gymnasiums," said Hadcroft.

CEO of Bridge of Hope Wines, Rosemary Mosia, said although her company had already been exporting small quantities of wines to Uganda since last year, she was hoping to secure another importer in order to increase her exports.
