The Ministry of Tourism, Trade and Industry (MTTI) is desirous of establishing an institutional framework for the cross-cutting area of Standards and Quality Infrastructure. Consequently, the Ministry with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) has developed a five year comprehensive programme, the Quality Infrastructure and Standards Programme (QUISP) to support this process. The programme seeks to develop a market-driven, holistic and coordinated institutional framework for the Ugandan Quality Infrastructure and Standards; which supports trade, industry, health, safety, consumer protection and a sustainable environment while at the same time promoting use of best practices in the production and service sectors.
The market-oriented Standards and Quality Infrastructure in this context should be understood in the most general terms, dealing with trade markets, with buyers and sellers, producers and consumers, but also with service markets, with public and private service providers and their clients.
