He also called upon the policy makers to consult with the actual e-commerce traders on issues concerning the market before actualizing policies that affect them.

“With this two-way knowledge exchange, we hope to learn from the already existing and successful ecommerce startups through regular interactions with the members, incubation programs and joint innovation projects especially now that we are marking 60 years of service in Uganda,” Ian Rumanyika the Head External and Cooperate Affairs commented.
