The current commodities trading systems in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania suffer from major inefficiencies, including lack of transparency, limited information availability, and limited access to agricultural credit. These countries have recently undertaken reforms aimed at establishing national commodities exchanges.  FSVC’s program will support these initiatives, and provide technical assistance to help develop fully integrated, modern commodities trading systems that will allow both farmers and consumers to benefit from lower transaction costs, price transparency, increased liquidity and assured quality.
