Uganda Budget Overview

he Ugandan Economy is steadily recovering from a slower growth due to the Covid-19 in the year 2020/2021. The World Bank’s forecast in the Global Economic Prospects places Uganda’s economic growth lower than most of its peers in the East African Community region. For the year 2021/2022 the economy is expected to grow at 4.6% compared to a revised 3.5% in 2020/2021. The growth is expected to mainly be driven by services sector contributing 41.5% in 2021/2022 (2020/2021: 41,8%), following the reopening of schools in 2022 and recovery in the hospitality sector.

DP per capita also increased from US$ 889 in FY 2018/19 to US$ 1046 in FY 2021/22, passing the annual National Development Plan III (NPD III) target of US$ 1006 and effectively confirming Uganda’s transition to lower middle-income status.
