RUSSIA’S Co-ordination Committee for Economic Cooperation with sub-Saharan African States (AfroCom) intends to open the Russian business support centre in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, Committee Chairman Igor Morozov said at the recent Russia-Uganda Business Forum.
‘Today we will for the first time make a presentation of the AfroCom trading house as the centre for support of the Russian business in Kampala, Uganda. We want to make our experiment exactly in this capital and create a model of this centre, to understand how we will support the Russian business, the midsize and the small one, from regions, which is ready to come to Africa and unlock all its capabilities, including creation of its enterprises and localisation,’ the Russian official news agency TASS reported Morozov as saying.
‘This is Uganda, in the first instance,’ he added.
AfroCom was created in 2009. The key task of the committee is to promote interests of the Russian business in Africa.
