Overview About International Trade in Uganda

Economic Overview

For 5 years, the GDP growth rate has been increasing between 6.3% to 9.5% annually, driven by consumption and investment. However, the slowing down of the global economy has curbed demand and consequently export growth and has shrunk wire transfers from expatriate workers, leading to lower growth. Estimated at 5.8% in 2010, it should consolidate during the coming years.

Public authorities are implementing the National Development Plan (NDP) over a period of five years (2010/11-2014/15), based on the development of infrastructures and agriculture, and aimed at stimulating exports and removing growth barriers. In the shorter term, the government must face a hike in inflation and the reduction in international aid.

Despite a clearly shrinking poverty level and obvious progress in infant nutrition, education and health, Uganda is still classified amongst the Least Developed Countries (LDC) category. It is disadvantaged by having the world's highest demographical growth rate and faces significant regional disparities.
