Kadaga says the deal would help to open market for Uganda in the Europe.

“I welcomed the call from the Serbian Speaker for Uganda to take advantage of the free trade area in Serbia to reach other markets in the European Union. This is something we are going to take up very urgently with the Minister of Trade and the Chamber of Commerce,” the speaker said in a post on her official Facebook page.

Uganda is already exporting fruits to Serbia and will increase on the quantities and frequencies of exports.

“I commend the government of Serbia for making progress in developing the country, despite the turmoil it faced,” she added.
