Uganda Imports (%) | Economic News & Forecasts

Uganda - Imports (percent change)

Momentum appears to have been broadly sustained in the third quarter, after annual growth slowed to a one-year low in the second quarter amid cooling services sector activity. Business sentiment remained broadly stable in Q3, while the economic activity index strengthened in August and again in September, following July’s slip, hinting at healthy private sector dynamics. Meanwhile, the manufacturing PMI came in higher, on average, in Q3 compared to Q2, signaling a likely upturn in the industrial sector. That said, merchandise export growth lost some pace in Q3, although remained healthy overall. In other news, the police and military have cracked down on student protests and media outlets in recent weeks, sparking international condemnation over excessive violence against opposition activists and intimidation of journalists.
