A World Cooperation Industries Forum (WCI) will be held in Turkiye to bring Turkish manufacturers and exporters together with potential partners from the entire African continent in September, 2022.
Recently, Utuk Bengisu, WCI chairman and founder of Bosphorus Expo announced in Kampala, where business-to-business meetings were organized by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and the Bosphorus Expo.
On the meeting, Bengisu urged Turkuish investors to invest in Uganda and enhance partnerships as Turkiye offers a ready market for Ugandan products.
Besides that, Turkiye-Uganda business summit co-hosted by the Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkiye (DEIK) and the Uganda Investments Authority in Kampala earlier this year.
Several Turkish companies have opened manufacturing plants and businesses in Uganda, creating jobs and boosting the local economy.
Emek Basak Eker, Uganda’s consul said, “Türkiye is promoting a model of encouraging its companies to invest more in developing economies rather than just exporting goods to these countries because this helps the local economy to develop.”
She would coordinate with Turkish investors to boost investment, production and export surplus, she said.
