Streamlining export processes of horticulture products

Removing barriers in cross-border trade boosts export volumes, improves transparency in inspections, and reduces operational costs, particularly for micro, small and medium enterprises. Together with the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation, Swisscontact in Uganda enables businesses to trade more easily thanks to optimised customs processing and modernised trading procedures.

Re-engineering Uganda’s Sanitary and Phytosanitary Inspection for Horticultural Exports (RUSH) is a project implemented by the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation through Swisscontact in Uganda, funded by the Governments of the United States, Canada, Germany and Denmark, and implemented by Swisscontact.
