Eleven Rwandan companies on Wednesday concluded a high level sales mission in Kampala, Uganda where they held meetings with several Ugandan business owners.
The meeting was organised by the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and Traidlinks, a non-profit making organisation based in Ireland.
The Rwandan companies introduced to the Ugandan market a wide range of products which include organic pyrethrum-based insecticides, furniture, granite tiles, and high quality chalk for schools.
“There is ready market and interest for our products,” said Jessie Kalisa, from G-MART, a manufacturing company of chalk in Rwanda.
Ugandan businesses expressed interest in the products.
“Our customers have already appreciated the quality of these products,” said Phiona Senyonga, a sales executive with Grakes General Supplies.
Therese Karitanyi, the General Manager of Agropharm Africa, said without such meetings, it would be difficult to get to the right consumers and distributors in the region.
Dan Mutezintare, the First Counsellor at the Rwanda High Commission in Uganda, urged the traders to ensure production of quality products and to also seal meaningful business relationships that will create a positive impact.
