    Background: MAJOR PROGRESS TOWARDS BUILDING UP EXPORTS MARKETS FOR UGANDA TOBACCO IN EUROPE AND ASIA WAS MADE ON WEDNESDAY IN ENTEBBE AT A MEETING OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UGANDA GOVERNMENT AND THE TOBACCO COMPANY OF ROTHMANS OF PALL MALL.

    TWO MONTHS AGO THE COMPANY SIGNED AN EXPORT CONTRACT WITH THE UGANDA GOVERNMENT. SINCE THEN A SURVEY HAS BEEN MADE BY ROTHMANS OF UGANDA'S TOBACCO INDUSTRY AND ITS FUTURE POTENTIAL.

    WEDNESDAY'S MEETING WAS ATTENDED BY THE UGANDA AGRICULTURAL OFFICER'S TOBACCO EXPERT, MR V.KIRABOKYAMARIA, AGRICULTURAL ADVISORS TO THE UGANDA GOVERNMENT, AND ADVISORS ON PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT.

    ROTHMANS ARE CONSIDERING BUYING ALL AVAILABLE TOBACCO FROM NEXT SEASON'S CROP FROM THE DISTRICTS OF ACHOLI, LANGO AND KIGEZI. THE COMPANY WILL REQUIRE ABOUT ONE MILLION POUNDS WEIGHT FOR USE IN EAST AFRICA, ANY SURPLUS CAN BE EXPORTED.

    AN EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF ROTHMANS, MR C. DE HAES, WHO REPRESENTED THE COMPANY AT THE MEETING, SAID HE COULD SEE NO REASON WHY TOBACCO SHOULD NOT BECOME A MAJOR SOURCE OF FOREIGN TRADE FOR UGANDA.

    THE COMPANY HAS UNDERTAKEN TO TRAIN UGANDANS IN ALL ASPECTS OF TOBACCO GROWING, PROCESSING AND MARKETING.
