Uganda Interest Rate at 10.00 percent  
The Bank of Uganda held its benchmark lending rate for the fifth consecutive time at 10% on August 15th, to support growth, as economic activity slowed in the first two quarters of the year. The GDP growth is projected at 6-6.3% in 2019, supported by strong domestic demand and improvements in the agricultural sector. Over a 2-5 year horizon, growth must remain robust, averaging 6.2 percent per annum. Still, policymakers pointed some downside risks to the outlook, namely external factors linked to a subdued global demand, alongside domestic ones such as weather-related constraints and delays in implementation of public investment programmes. Regarding inflation, though it slowed sharply to a 7-month low of 2.6 percent in July, the near-term inflation forecasts are higher than in June.
