June 2012 at the Golf Course Hotel, Kampala. 

Office
bearers:

Mr.
V.Vadera retained the position of Chairmanship by a unanimous decision.

Mr.
Billy Singh was elected Vice Chairman replacing Mr. Samson Agasa who had been Vice
Chairman for the previous two years.

In
his report the Chairman informed the meeting that Uganda tea

production during 2011 was 56 million kgs, a drop of 5.4% compared to 2010. The
corresponding exports dropped by almost 10%. The decline in production was
attributed to adverse weather effects during the year.  Also high prices of inputs like fertilizers, labor
and fuels partly contributed to the fall.
