Tanzania Makes U-turn On Uganda Sugar

0 51

Tanzania banned sugar from Uganda in 2019, saying the imports originated from third-party countries.
Presidents Samia Suluhu and Yoweri Museveni agree on sugar, ARVs and truck fees.


Tanzania will resume buying sugar from Uganda, signalling a relaxation of one of the trade disputes that has lasted close to three years.

President Samia Suluhu, during day one of her two-day state visit to Uganda, agreed with her host President Yoweri Museveni that Kampala would also supply her country with anti-retroviral (ARVs) drugs.

According to a joint communiqué released after the Presidents’ meeting on Tuesday evening, Uganda will supply 10,000 tonnes of sugar to fill a production gap in Tanzania.
