According to ‘John Walugembe,’ the Executive Director of the Federation of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises that the relationship with SEATINI is useful, and a sign of the MOU will also ensure that they can now engage in robust policy advocacy that will ensure that the business environment will improve the business environment for MSMEs in this country and for business in general.
