Netherlands imparts business skills training to textile firms

Sep '11
In a bid to boost the competitiveness of Ugandan textile and handicraft firms, they have been provided training in business skills by the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing nations, functioning under the Netherlands Government.

The “Exports' coaching programme” attracted participation of more than 25 companies.

The programme intends to develop the capabilities of small and medium firms in developing nations to make them more competitive in world markets.

The training is imparted in six phases spread over a span of five years. All the participating companies derive benefit from the technical support fund of €60,000 or around sh246million.

The firms get benefit in technical support in varied areas like export training, product design, and accounts and book keeping.

The training programme proved to be an opportune event for small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs) of Uganda, as several SMEs in the country are grappling against challenges such as the need for product branding, which trim the possibilities of their earning a better access to export markets.

The Ugandan Ministry of Trade, Industries and Cooperatives has assured its total support to the programme and expects that other product areas are also brought within the cover of the programme or assistance.

When the Exports' coaching programme was first launched in 2006, it was supported by 45 firms. However, presently owing to the co-funding gap there are only three companies associated with the programme.
