Uganda is set to host the World Chamber Federation forum this week at the Kampala Serena hotel, bringing together close to 1000 guests from 50 countries.
The forum, for June 18, is expected to deepen trade links between the chambers. It will also provide an opportunity for participants from the different chambers to engage some of the key decision-makers in the region.
Olive Kigongo, the president of Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said: “The Forum will help create new business opportunities and influence public policies across the EAC business community, improving the business environment and also helping chambers better understand the important value-added services that they provide in achieving economic development in their communities.”
Finance Minister Maria Kiwanuka will deliver the key note speech.
