BAT LAUNCHES REGIONAL WEBSITE IN UGANDA
BritishAmerican Tobacco has launched a regional website known as BAT East Africa Community website. The website, www.bateac.com, launched by the Executive Director of the Uganda Investment Authority, Ms Maggie Kigozi at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel yesterday is aimed at fostering BAT's identity as an East African business and provide information on BAT's operations in East Africa.
BAT East African community is a business unit of the BAT global that previously included Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania but has now expanded to include Rwanda and Burundi and has re-emerged at a time when the governments of the East African states are seeking political integration under the East African Community. A Kiswahili version of the website will be introduced in the future to make it accessible to all the people of East Africa.
