In our post-budget publication, we review the economic and sectoral performance during FY11/12 and Government’s FY12/13 Budget strategy and priorities and what this means for businesses operating in Uganda. We also summarise the key strategies and priorities for the other member states in the East African Community. Following on from last year, we have also looked at the key sectors in the Ugandan economy in terms of the macroeconomic environment within which they operate, the challenges they are facing and to what extent the FY12/13 budget addresses these challenges.
This year's budget is unique in that it’s the first time the speech has had a very business like tone, reflecting a fresh new thinking and new way of doing business which demonstrates a paradigm shift in Government’s thinking and approach. This year’s budget theme; “Priorities for Renewed Economic Growth and Development”, is further proof of this new approach and is also aligned with the Government’s National Development Plan 2010/11 – 2014/15(NDP)’s theme – “Growth, Employment and Socio-Economic Transformation for Prosperity”.
