Tour of job creation models and industries under the South-South Cooperation

On the 28th of July 2018, a delegation of  investors and agricultural experts from Sichuan Province in China toured job creation models and industries under the South-South Cooperation with Hon. Vincent Bamulangaki Sempijja the Minister for Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries.

One of the areas visited was the Lukaya Natural Rice Farm which was established on 3600 acres of land and directly employs over 750 Ugandans.

Community benefit model

The Lukaya Natural Rice Farm has an inclusive design through which it produces rice, processes it and sells it to the local community and neighbouring countries.

The farm also serves as a nucleus farm with out-growers to contribute to livelihood improvement and poverty reduction in the communities.
