According to the directive by President Yoweri Museveni to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives plus the Ministry of Agriculture to find land to facilitate the growing of rubber which is an essential raw material for the production of medical supplies.

“The Minister of Industry should be in touch with Agriculture about the growing of rubber. Because, this is the linkage – the rubber which is agriculture, links up with the oil industry, the factory links up with the health sector, etc,” Yoweri Museveni said.
