Ugandan textile industries at Las Vegas Show

Feb '06
Ugandan representatives from textile industries will exhibit their products at a Las Vegas trade show, as part of an effort coordinated in part by the University of Georgia.

The University of Georgia (UGA) International Public Service and Outreach and the International Trade Division of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as well as the and the East Africa American Business Council (EAABC) are coordinating the participation of six Ugandan apparel and textile manufacturers and one representative of the Uganda Investment Authority at the Fall/Winter show of MAGIC Marketplace at the Las Vegas Convention Center February 21-24, 2006.

The companies will exhibit their apparel products, develop contacts with US importers, and may sign sales contracts. This effort will help provide employment opportunities for Ugandan men and women without displacing U.S. workers.

The Uganda project — Uganda and African Growth Opportunities Act (AGOA): A Focus on Value-Added Textile Exports — is a US State Department-funded project designed to build linkages between Ugandan apparel and textile manufacturers and US importers, wholesalers and retailers. The Georgia connection is through a partnership between the UGA and the EAABC in Atlanta. The Uganda Investment Authority (UAI) in Kampala is the project's overseas partner.

Mr Valentine Ogwang, Uganda Investment Authority, heads the Ugandan delegation and will provide follow up for the project to ensure itssustainability. The Ugandan company representatives are: Mr Vijit T Ratnarajah, Apparels Tri-Star Ltd; Mrs Rachel K Bwankosya, Kwera Ltd; Mr Paul Kagumire, Phenix Logistics Uganda Ltd.; Mr Herbert Musisi, Arch Graphics (Samaki); Mr Anantkumar P Parmar, Sigma Knitting Limited; and Mr Richard Mubiru and Mr Sudha Karan Menon, Southern Range Nyanza Ltd.
