Kenya: After holding talks with Uhuru Kenyatta, President of Kenya, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said that Kenya has agreed to increase sugar imports from 36,000 tonnes to 90,000 tonnes annually from Uganda.

According to Citizentv.co.ke, President Museveni also disclosed that it has been agreed that Uganda will resume exporting poultry to Kenya within a week.

“I am glad that our counterparts have agreed to let Uganda increase its sugar exports to Kenya from 36,000 metric tonnes to 90,000 metric tonnes annually. Also, it is important that Uganda will resume exporting poultry to Kenya within a week from now,” tweeted Museveni.

In return, the Ugandan President added on behalf of Ugandan government that they would immediately lift the ban on beef imports from Kenya.

“In return, Uganda will immediately lift the ban on beef imports from Kenya, since the mad cow disease that occasioned this ban is no more. There are more areas of trade cooperation that we should look at and I ask our technocrats to explore these opportunities,” he said.

The Ugandan sectors of dairy producers and tile makers are also geared up to be benefitted and will have lesser paperwork hassles in order to export to Kenya. The Ugandan President’s two-day visit in Kenya’s coastal province Mombasa seems to sweeten many sectors for export-import channels between Uganda and Kenya.
