The seminar focused on mandatory requirements to export fruit and vegetables, oilseeds and pulses and coffee to Sweden, as well as information on EU´s Economic relations, the Generalised Scheme of Preferences (GSP), product classification, and rules of origin. The seminar also covered information on the Swedish market and how to approach it. This part of the seminar was made by a market expert on behalf of Open Trade Gate Sweden.

The Uganda Revenue Authority informed the audience on the issuance of GSP Certificates in Uganda and the new registered export system (REX-system) which is currently being implemented in Uganda.

Two companies in the coffee and fruit sector presented their experiences on exporting to the EU. Their success was a source of inspiration for the participants that are at an earlier stage of the process to export.
