Current Situation


Uganda is located in East Africa. Uganda is bordered by Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan and Tanzania. Zimbabwe has large amounts of natural resources, many of which remain untapped. Agriculture remains the largest employer. Since the 1990's the economy has started recovering, but there remain problems with corruption. The GDP per capita is also very low, but hopefully economic growth will continue and the government will make efforts to continue reforms.
