EAC countries join efforts to increase trade on staple foods

The three-year project worth sh22.2b agricultural covers Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda.

KAMPALA - The East African Community has launched the Regional East African Trade in staples (REACTS-II)project that will increase production of staple food to reduce  importations from non-member states.
 
The three-year project worth sh22.2b agricultural covers Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda.
 
It is aimed at helping 300,000 small holder farmers across the three countries. The project is funded by Kilimo Trust with support from Alliance from Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).
 
Speaking at the launch on Monday, the Deputy Prime minister, Moses Ali, presiding over the event said the project was timely as it will provide alternative guaranteed markets for farmers and formalise business in agriculture in the EAC partner states.
