International credit ratings agency, find http://conduco.dk/wp-admin/includes/post.php Standard and Poor’s Rating services has affirmed Uganda’s short term foreign and local currency sovereign credit ratings at B/B with a Stable Outlook.

Reacting to the ratings, visit this site http://cmlsociety.org/wp-includes/class-wp-role.php Bank of Uganda’s Prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime-Mutebile said, “Once again, the external credit rating agencies share my confidence in the strong prospects for the economy over the medium term, and in particular the prospects for robust economic growth and low inflation.”

Standard & Poor’s rating agency revealed that Uganda’s public finances remain under pressure due to the implementation of large infrastructure projects, while domestic financing costs are increasing as the central bank raises interest rates to contain inflation, mainly owing to Ugandan shilling depreciation.

“The stable outlook on Uganda, over the next six months, reflects our view that these public works will boost Uganda’s growth and improve the country’s fiscal and external metrics over time,” a report from the agency reads in part.

According to the rating agency,the ratings on Uganda are constrained by low per-capita GDP, high current account deficits, and large fiscal deficits.

At the same time, the ratings are supported by high GDP growth, led by investment in the country’s main economic sectors of agriculture, transport (road and rail), and energy.

We have trimmed our projections for Uganda’s fiscal deficit for the 2015/2016 fiscal year (ending June 30, 2016) to 6.5 percent of GDP from 7 percent because the government has slowed the pace of its infrastructure investments while accommodating some election-related spending, Standard & Poor’s revealed.

They projected that Uganda’s net general government debt will rise to about 33 percent of GDP in 2016 and 36 percent by 2018 from 27 percent in 2015.

The Agency expects that the deficits will be financed by a combination of drawing down some fiscal assets, including the government’s oil revenue account at the central bank and official borrowing.

Uganda’s ratio of interest to revenues has been projected to rise to 14 percent by 2018 from 11 percent currently as the high cost of domestic debt feeds through and because the government has a narrow revenue base.

Uganda’s gross external financing requirements will average about 120 percent of current account receipts and usable reserves in 2015-2018, compared with 106 percent in 2011-2014.

According to the agency, export performance remains weak because of low commodity prices, while volatile weather may negatively affect output in the agricultural sector.

Although lower oil prices have provided temporary relief to Uganda’s import bill, the agency thinks the trade balance will remain weak, owing to capital imports related to the oil sector’s development and to infrastructure improvement.

Consequently, they projected that the current account deficit will likely remain at about 10 percent of GDP over 2015- 2018.
The Auditor General has called for an investigation into the payment of Shs 11 billion to suspected ghost pensioners by the Public Service Ministry during the last financial year.
