Over the weekend while having lunch with a friend, we picked up a discussion on the national budget and how it will enhance drive against the effects of covid-19.
The pandemic that started in March 2020 has continued to constrain Uganda’s economic status and impact negatively on the livelihood.
It’s also unfortunate that the pandemic has also slowed various economic activities and largely frustrated our country’s achievements registered within the previous years.
In spite of the glaring effects of covid-19, we are optimistic that the 2022/2023 budget shall surely offer reasonable solutions and way-forward to enhance economic recovery drive and, boosting wealth creation.
The budget also target to ensure growth and industrialization for inclusive growth especially with glaring government commitment.
Government will conduct vaccination and increase resources to curb other communicable and non-communicable diseases, fast track the national health insurance policy and stabilizing the education sector after the pandemic.
In a bid to empower the digital transformation in the country, the government will be implementing last mile connectivity broadband infrastructure.
This is to ensure that hospitals, schools, tourism sites and other essential services are connected.
The budget will also focus on the restoration of business activities by increasing access to capital and improving the well-being of Ugandans by enhancing the health sector and system.
