- In 2014 Uganda saw the consolidation of macroeconomic stability and a gradual recovery of economic activity, with real GDP growth projected to reach 5.9% in FY 2014/15 from 4.5% growth in FY 2013/14.
- This recovery in economic activity is mainly supported by public investment on infrastructure, recovery in private domestic consumption and investment demand, and a rebound in agriculture.
- Uganda remains on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goal poverty reduction target as absolute poverty rates continue to drop, from 24.5% in FY 2009/10 to 19.7% in FY 2012/13 (with corresponding improvements in child nutrition and declining infant mortality) and overall life expectancy advances to 59, three years higher than in 2009.
