Uganda Economic Outlook

  • In 2013 Uganda saw the consolidation of macroeconomic stability and a gradual recovery of economic activity, with real GDP growth projected to reach 5.2% in 2013 and 6.6% in 2014.
  • A fiscal and monetary policy stance focused on containing inflationary pressures has provided an enabling environment for economic growth by ensuring debt and exchange rate stability.
  • Uganda remains on track to achieve its Millennium Development Goal for poverty reduction by 2015 with absolute poverty continuing to drop, from 24.5% in 2009/10 to 22.2% in 2012/13.

Uganda can surely make it on its own. There are two significant aspects we must address to make all Ugandans’ reach the peak of their aspirations: 1) Leaders who love the country and 2) All Ugandans to take responsibility for their actions. The question on everybody’s’ lips; (young or old, economically disadvantaged or otherwise, formally trained or otherwise) should be ‘‘How can I put this to use today?’
