Uganda

Uganda is a low-income Sub-Saharan country facing considerable social and economic problems. Its economy is moving slowly with a GNI per capita of US $ 270 in 2005 and rising to US $ 510 in 2015. Improving the business climate does not seem to be a priority in view of the fact that Uganda's WB Doing Business rating deteriorated from 72nd place in 2006 to 150th in 2015. The worsening of the business environment is illustrated by the data on the enforcement of contracts: in 2005 this required 15 procedures and take 209 days on average. In 2015 it would take 38 procedures and 490 days.
Ugandan employers’ national and international interests are being represented by the Federation of Uganda Employers (FUE), member of the International Organisation of Employers. DECP undertook a fact-finding mission to FUE in 2007 and concluded a partnership agreement in 2008. FUE and DECP have focussed their cooperation on improving FUE’s financial situation and income-generating services, on better communication both with members and with policy makers, on the development of a sustainable regional structure and on enhancing FUE’s research and advocacy capacity.
