First Nordic-East Africa Trade Summit

The first ever Nordic-East Africa Trade Summit & Expo in Kampala is expected to bring together more than 200 high-level delegates from East Africa and the Nordic region. The two-day event will take place from November 17 to November 18 at the Speke Resort, Munyonyo. The Nordic Business Association (NBA) in Uganda expects the business leaders from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda, and their counterparts from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland to attend. NBA chairperson Rikke Adamsen said: "The aim of this event is to create a Nordic-East Africa B2B platform that will share opportunities and knowledge for business growth in the East African market." Ms Dorothy M. Tuma, the director DMT consultants, a business consultancy, said: "EAC imports from Sweden were valued at just over $197m in 2014. This figure accounted for 37 %  of the EAC's imports from Nordic countries. (…) In the same year, Norway was the primary Nordic destination for EAC exports, accounting for 45 %  of exports to that region. Exports, primarily flowers, were valued at just under $65m."
