Strategic Economic Policy and Management (STEPMAN) FORUM Policy Note # 1
The first Policy note in the series is focused on Uganda’s export strategy. This focus is premised on export potentuial of Uganda being among the top priorities to deliver revenue targets that would transition the country to middle income status by 2020. The note therefore adopts a three step strategy i.e. ‘Triple Win Strategy’ for unlocking a transformative export strategy for Uganda. In the first step, coffee, tea and fisheries are identified as the low hanging fruits with potential to yield sizeable export revenues with relatively minimal resource efforts. The second step epitomizes the need to revisit the limited public sector investment in accessible farm level technologies. The third step is galvanizing macroeconomic fundamentals and strengthening institutions to match the new challenges of averting the current weak commodity exports.
