Gulu has opened its doors to its first forex bureau. For the first time in history, people in Gulu have access to forex services outside of the banks and backdoor money changers. Jonathan Zhaam, manager of Jetset Forex Bureau, on Atwal Road, says his company was attracted to Gulu by the increasing business between Uganda, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. He says the demand for forex services is great in Northern Uganda because the number of traders using the region as a stop-over or a base of their operations is on the rise. //Cue in: iOur network #i Cue out: i# part of them.i// Santo Obwana, a trader in Gulu, says the opening of the forex bureau will save him a lot of time and money. He says it will cut out constant travel to Kampala and it will offer prices better than those provided by the banks.
