Abstract
This study uses trend of available data to explain Uganda’s lint export performance in the periods prior and subsequent to Trade Liberalization. The study discovered that average growth rate of lint export from Uganda increased significantly in the period prior to trade liberalization but fell sharply in the period subsequent to Trade Liberalization. The study recommends for promotion of trade within the region to supplement Uganda’s lint export to the world market.
