The Parliaments of Uganda and Serbia on Friday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish collaboration between the two legislatures.
The Memorandum was signed by Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga and the Speaker of Serbia’s Parliament, Maja Gojkovic.
Kadaga 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.
“It is very exciting to hear from H.E. Gojkovic that through Serbia, we can access other markets. It is something we are going to take up very urgently with the Minister of Trade and the Chamber of Commerce,” said Kadaga.
She added that Uganda is already exporting fruits to Serbia and will increase on the quantities and frequencies of exports.
Kadaga also commended the government of Serbia for making progress in developing the country, despite the turmoil it faced.
Gojkovic, who was flanked by two MPs, said that their visit to Uganda is aimed at exploring possibilities of improving bi-lateral and multi-lateral cooperation.
“We are happy that after this first visit, we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the friendly Parliament of Uganda. Our host has already established a parliamentary group of friendship between Uganda and Serbia,” said Gojkovic.
She added that the MoU intends to establish cooperation between the committees of the two Parliaments.
“We have spoken about further cooperation within the Inter-Parliamentary Union.”
