The business communities of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) from the seven EAC partner states have all descended at the Kololo Ceremonial Grounds with various goods and services made from the region.

The event, which is being held under the theme: Buy East African to Build East Africa for Resilience and Sustainable Development, has attracted more than 1,000 artisans from the partner states. 

The goods include textiles, foodstuffs, ornaments, handiwork, cosmetics, African wear, plants, seedlings, machinery, shoes, bags, medicines, furniture, and art and craft materials.

The Jua Kali/Nguvu Kazi Exhibition was officially launched yesterday on the 11th of December 2022 which started on Thursday, December 8, and is expected to end on Sunday.

The prime minister of Uganda Robinah Nabbanja opened up this trade show and she invited Ugandans to buy products and build networks. 

“The representatives from all the seven partner states are here. Come and buy to support the business community,” Nabbanja said.
