 Uganda is a landlocked country located in the East central part of Africa. It is bordered to the east by Kenya, to the south by Tanzania, to the north by South Sudan and to the west by the Democratic Republic of Congo. Also known as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda is endowed with good climate and treasured for its natural resources.

 

Uganda’s GDP growth was estimated at 5.3% in 2018, the agricultural sector being the major driver of the country’s economic growth. Indeed, agricultural products represent almost 80% of the country’s total exports. The country’s most exported goods are coffee followed by tea, cotton, copper, oil and fish. Uganda’s main export partners are Sudan, Kenya, DR Congo, Netherlands, Germany, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
