KCB Bank Uganda Business Club customers will travel to Tokyo Japan from the 2nd -12th March 2019 for a ten days trip that is aimed at exposing them to the world of business ranging from cottage industries, small scale industries, electronic markets, motor vehicle parts and used motor vehicle exportation inspection among others.

“The Tokyo business trip will educate and inform our SME business owners and customers of the viable business opportunities, amplify their knowledge and skill-set in the electronic, technological, agricultural, innovative and entrepreneurial space that will better expertise upon return,” said Edgar Byamah, Managing Director KCB Bank Uganda.

The business trip is organized by KCB Bank Uganda in partnership with the Japanese embassy and KCB Bank customers. This is the fifth foreign trip the bank has organized for its customers and over 50 have benefited.

These trips have been embraced by customers who have later been able to transform their businesses through increased production, have grown revenue and new lines of business established.

Japan was chosen for this trip for its uniqueness as a landlocked country that stood out as one of the most industrious with the support of technology.

Japan has a strong business acumen built around culture. KCB customers will meet possible suppliers and markets for their goods and services, pick new best practices, new and cheap technologies and visit key development areas in Japan. Over 30 KCB customers are expected to travel.
