Speaking at Bukhungu Stadium during the second regional BBI forum, Wamalwa said the recommendations will be implemented soon for the benefit of sugar cane farmers that will go a long way in reviving the sugar sub sector in western region.

The Devolution CS further said that the government is exploring ways of improving cross border trade between communities living in counties bordering Uganda as part of the building bridges initiative.
