Uganda Export Promotion Board (UEPB) (MarketLinked)

This is an initiative, launched in 2009, by Irish Aid. MarketLinked is executed by Traidlinks in partnership with the Uganda Export Promotion Board, which is the implementing secretariat of the Ugandan National Export Strategy. The programme aims at: (i) assisting business development and enhancing competitiveness among Ugandan agri-businesses; (ii) strengthening Ugandan agri-businesses management in the food and processed food sector through focused skills transfer; and (iii) identifying and facilitating the exploitation of export opportunities in a neighbouring regional market. This project has been working with selected companies in a series of activities ranging over training, market research, business counselling and mentoring, marketing and promotion.
