  • TITLE: Uganda’s Fiscal Policy (2000-2016): Implications for Public Investment Management (PIM)

    AUTHORS: Asumani Guloba

    KEYWORDS: Fiscal Policy, Public Expenditure, Public Investment

    JOURNAL NAME: American Journal of Industrial and Business Management, Vol.8 No.3, March 14, 2018

    ABSTRACT: Uganda has recently pursued expansionary fiscal policies, driven by the desire to improve the country’s infrastructure, increase the production of assets, and facilitate accelerated growth. Nevertheless, providing more resources for capital development in line with the country development aspirations alone will not necessarily translate in optimal infrastructure investments. A question that arises is, what comes first: Is it to invest in the effort to establish effective systems for managing public investment in order to yield high returns or should financing these investments precede capacity challenges. Using a rich dataset of public sector projects defined by project, financing mix, sector etc; the paper carries out project absorptive capacity and overall fiscal trend analysis to ascertain whether budgeted projects translated to intended outturns. It is found that weak Public Investment capacity has led to less than budgeted public investment outturn which has reduced intended fiscal policy impact. As such, for Uganda to achieve its fiscal objectives there is need to balance its expansionary fiscal policies with the ability to absorb fiscal resources.
