The Busoga Consortium for Development is set to ink a pivotal three-year trade agreement with Liaoning province of China.

The announcement came during a high-profile meeting between the Chinese delegation and the First Deputy Prime Minister, Rebecca Kadaga, in Kampala.

The agreement will pave the way for the export of agricultural products from Busoga to Liaoning Province, China, with a primary focus on simsim.

The upcoming signing ceremony, scheduled for tomorrow in Jinja, marks a significant step towards establishing bilateral relations between the two entities.

During the meeting in Kampala, Vice Governor Wang Jian of Liaoning Province highlighted the potential for Busoga and the entire country to tap into rich and diverse cultural tourism and agricultural heritage, enabling them to compete on the global market.

"This bilateral trade will not only boost productivity but also serve as a catalyst in mitigating pre and post-harvest losses," remarked Fredrick Gume, Member of Parliament for Busoga's Bulamogi Northwest constituency, expressing optimism about China's potential market.

Antony Mule, Director General of Busoga Consortium for Development, believes that the trade deal will jump-start the poverty eradication journey, ushering in a monetary economy that has long been overshadowed by subsistence farming.
