Uganda Interest Rate at 9.00 percent


The Bank of Uganda left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 9.0 percent at its August 2018 meeting, saying the decision is consistent given the objective of keeping inflation close to the 5 percent target and the need to contribute to attaining sustainable economic growth. Annual inflation rate rose to 3.1 percent in July from 2.2 percent in June, due to higher prices of oil. Policymakers mentioned that a weaker shilling exchange rate combined with higher cost of oil could elevated the inflation trajectory while food prices are expected to remain low and are not a major risk to the inflation outlook. Core inflation is projected to peak around 6-7 percent in the second half of FY 2018/19 but will stabilize around the medium-term target by the end of 2019. The Committee added that the economic activity continues to strengthen and it is expected to expand 6 percent in FY 2018/2019.
