PREAMBLE

 

Your Excellency the President,

 

The Right Honourable Speaker of Parliament, His Lordship the Chief Justice,

 

The Right Honourable Leader of the Opposition Honourable Ministers and Members of Parliament,

Your Excellencies, Ambassadors and Heads of Diplomatic Missions Distinguished Guests,

 

Ladies and Gentlemen.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in accordance with Article 155(1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, I presented, on behalf of His Excellency, the President, the budget for Financial Year 2018/19 to Parliament on 25th March 2018. The budget was duly approved by Parliament on 1st June 2018, for which I very much commend Parliament.

 

  1. So today, I am presenting just the highlights of the approved budget.

 

  1. INTRODUCTION

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the Financial Year 2018/19 Budget has been formulated based on the socio-economic achievements made in the recent past, and the challenges that we still face today. The right policies that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Government has consistently developed and implemented over several years have led to key socio-economic development gains.

BUDGET SPEECH

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the NRM Government has, to state the obvious, since 1986 laid a firm foundation for Uganda’s socio-economic development. Witness the following:-

 

  1. Uganda is now at peace and without any civil conflict, which provides a suitable environment for investment. Security of persons and property reigns, although some criminal minded individuals want to disrupt this peace;

 

  1. The rule of law now permeates all spheres of life, with a sound Judiciary and the enforcement of contracts being guaranteed by commercial law;

 

  • Economic stability has been consistently maintained with the economy growing at an average annual rate of growth of 6.5% for the last 30 years, together with fairly low inflation;

 

  1. Ugandan exporters now enjoy duty free access to both the East African Community (EAC), and East and Southern Africa (COMESA) markets, a few non tariff barriers notwithstanding;

 

  1. Energy and Transport gaps, which are the major cost drivers for businesses are being seriously addressed.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, as a result of these basics, the quality of life of most Ugandans and the standards of living of households in Uganda have tremendously improved. For Instance:-

 

  1. Incomes have increased with average per capita incomes nearly doubling in the last eight years, from Shs 1,354,000 in FY2009/10 to Shs 2,684,000 in FY 2017/2018, in spite of a rising population;

 

  1. The number of Ugandan employees in the formal sector grew at an average annual growth rate of 6 per cent between 2010 and 2013 and the national unemployment rate declined from 11 per cent in 2013 to 9 per cent in 2017;

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

  • 1% of the population are within a 5 kilometers access to health facilities compared to 83.3% in 2013;

 

  1. More families are living in houses built with permanent materials with 75 percent of households living in iron roofed shelter in 2017 compared to 68 per cent in 2013;

 

  1. Access to the national electricity grid has increased from 14 percent in 2013 to 22 percent today. In addition, 18% of households use solar power, and 6% use paraffin lanterns. A further 21% of households use batteries for lighting.

 

  1. Access to improved sources of drinking water has increased from 68 percent in 2013 to 78 percent in 2017.

 

  • There were 10.2 million pupils enrolled in primary schools in 2017 compared to 8.7 million in 2013. In addition, disparities between boys and girls in both primary and secondary education have also reduced with the sex ratio in primary schools increasing from 0.96 in 2013 to 0.99 in 2017, and in secondary schools from 0.89 to 0.95 over the same period.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, despite the demonstrable gains achieved by the mighty NRM Government over the years, Uganda still faces major development challenges which include the following:-

 

  1. 9% of Ugandan Households remain engaged in the subsistence economy. These households are highly vulnerable to risks such as drought that results from climate change. 43% of these households are engaged in subsistence agriculture, producing what they consume;

 

  1. Whereas income per person has increased, inequality between rural and urban areas has risen with rural poverty rising from 22.8% in 2013 to 25.8% in 2017, against a marginal increase in urban poverty from 9.3% to 9.4% over the same period;

BUDGET SPEECH

 

  • Agricultural sector growth has been low, growing at an average annual growth rate of less than 2 % over the last 25 years, compared to population growth of 3% annually;

 

  1. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Manufacturing Firms and other Private Sector entrepreneurs are still faced with high costs of electricity and transport, limited and expensive financing and competition, mainly from cheaper goods from

 

Asia;

 

  1. Inadequate or inappropriate skilled labour failing to meet the manpower requirements for the job market;

 

  1. Low entrepreneurial knowledge and limited application of technologies in production processes, particularly in agriculture and industry;

 

  • Limited availability of patient and appropriate long-term finance to start or boost SMEs and private sector investment.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to consolidate the progress the NRM Government has achieved, and address the challenges we still face, I will elaborate the budget strategy later in my statement.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the Financial Year 2018/19 Budget theme is “Industrialization for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity”.

 

We adopted this theme this financial year in consultation with the East African Community partners. It will guide the budget in both preparation and execution for the next three financial years.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in my presentation today, I will restrict myself to the following:-

 

  1. Reporting on the performance of the economy;

 

 

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

  1. Presenting the Budget Strategy that addresses our development challenges and propels Uganda into Middle Income Status;

 

  • Updating Parliament on the performance of key selected sectors in financial year 2017/18 Budget, and the priorities for the coming financial year; and

 

  1. Highlighting the financial year 2018/19 revenue measures to enhance domestic revenue mobilization and key priority expenditure allocations.

 

 

 

 

  1. Financial Year 2017/18 Economic Performance and Medium Term Economic Outlook

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in the Financial Year 2017/18 the economy has been influenced by both global and domestic developments.

 

 

Global Developments

 

  1. Madam Speaker, growth of the global economy is estimated at 3.9 percent in 2017, up from 3.2 percent in 2016. This is mainly due to recovery in advanced world economies, and rising commodity prices including the price of crude oil resulting in increased trade volumes.

 

 

Domestic Development

 

Economic Growth

 

  1. Madam Speaker, economic output is estimated to grow by 5.8% during this financial year, higher than the performance of 3.9% last year. The size of the economy is now Shs 101.8 Trillion equivalent to USD 27.9 Billion. This growth was the result of the following:

 

 

  1. The Services sector which grew at 3% compared to 5.4% last financial year. This performance was mainly as a result of improvement in the financial, Information and

 

Communications and trade subsectors.

 

  1. The Industrial sector which expanded by 2% compared to 3.4% last financial year due to good performance in construction and agro-processing, and recovery in the Mining and Quarrying sub-sectors.

 

  • The Agriculture sector whose growth doubled during the year to 2% compared to 1.6% last year. The improved performance was mainly due to better weather conditions, control of pests and diseases and targeted Government interventions, particularly seed distribution and provision of better extension services.

 

 

Domestic Prices

 

  1. Madam Speaker, despite the increase in the global price of oil this year, inflation has remained stable and in single digit. Annual headline inflation is projected to average 3.6%. This is mainly due to the increased supply of agricultural output, coupled with sound economic policy management.

 

 

Private Sector Credit and Interest rates

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the stock of outstanding Private Sector Credit increased from Shs 11.9 Trillion in March 2017 to Shs 12.8 Trillion in March 2018, recording an annual growth of 7.8%, which is higher than 6.1% a year earlier. The recovery of private sector credit signifies improvements in economic activity, business confidence, and increased private sector demand for credit partly due to lower interest rates. This recovery in private sector credit would have been stronger if the banks were not

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

overly risk averse. The Central Bank Rate (CBR) was reduced from 11.5% in March 2017 to 9% in March 2018, with lending rates falling from 22.5% to 20.1% over the same period. Non-performing loans nearly halved from 10.5% of gross loans in December 2016 to 5.6% in December 2017.

 

 

International Trade

 

  1. Export earnings rose by 9.6% to US$ 3.93 billion in the period July 2017 to March 2018 from USD 3.59 billion a year earlier. This increase was mainly on account of a rise in the export volumes of beans, coffee, tea and maize. Over the same period, exports to the rest of the EAC grew from USD 792.3 million to USD 943.5 million; while exports to Europe grew from USD 415.8 million to USD 466.1 million.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, on the other hand imports increased by 16.4% valued at US$ 5.7 billion in the period July 2017 to March 2018 from US$ 4.9 billion over the same period the previous year. This was attributed to the increase in the prices of oil imports and the increased inflow of capital goods to support domestic investment, particularly in oil and gas, electricity and roads.

 

 

International Reserves and Exchange Rate

 

  1. Madam Speaker, despite some disruptions in our export markets in the region, international reserves continue to accumulate. By

 

March 2018, our reserves were US$ 3.6 Billion which could finance 5 months of our future imports.

 

  1. The Ugandan Shilling was relatively stable against the US dollar during the first half of 2017/18. The Shilling marginally weakened against the US dollar by only 0.6 percent having moved from a monthly average of Shs. 3,601.5 in July 2017 to

 

 

 

Industrialisation for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity              7

 

BUDGET SPEECH

 

Shs. 3,623.3 in December 2017. This outcome on the exchange rate was mainly due to, among others, increased export receipts especially from coffee and tea. However, since March 2018, the shilling has lost ground against the US Dollar on account of increased demand from the energy, oil and manufacturing sectors.

 

 

Domestic Revenues

 

  1. Madam Speaker, despite the revenue shortfall this year, domestic revenues have improved on an annual basis on account of increased capacity to collect taxes. During the financial year just ending, tax and non-tax revenue is estimated at Shs. 14.5 Trillion, equivalent to14.2% of GDP.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, transferring the administration of Non-

 

Tax Revenue to Uganda Revenue Authority has significantly improved revenue collection from this source, estimated at Shs 430 billion this year compared to Shs 354 billion last year.

 

 

Expenditures

 

  1. Madam Speaker, total government expenditure during this financial year is estimated to amount to Shs. 27 Trillion equivalent to 26.5% of GDP. Excluding domestic refinancing, development expenditure this year amounted to 44% of the budget. The absorption of externally borrowed funds doubled to about 75%, although disbursements were less than programmed, leading to underperformance of the development budget. This improvement is attributed to the continuous implementation of reforms in public investment management and strengthened supervision of projects. Government is working with the development partners to increase the capacity of Ministries Agencies and Local Governments, in these areas.

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

Budget Deficit and its Financing

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the fiscal deficit this year is estimated at 4.8% of GDP, a 0.9 percentage point increase over last year’s level.

 

This is a result of an increase in development expenditure and other investments, which rose to 8.8 percent of GDP, up from

 

7.9 percent last year. The deficit was financed largely by both concessional and non-concessional loans, and to a lesser extent through domestic borrowing, which increased from Ushs 612 billion last year to Ushs 1,690 billion this year.

 

 

Public Debt

 

  1. Madam Speaker, as at March 2018, public debt stood at USD 10.53 billion of which USD 7.18 billion is external and USD 3.35 billion is domestic. The ratio of Public debt to GDP now stands at 38.1 percent in nominal terms. This is much lower than the threshold of 50% beyond which public debt becomes unsustainable. Our public debt is therefore sustainable over the short to medium term, even when we include the financing required for priority projects in the pipeline.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in line with the Medium Term Debt Strategy, our borrowing strategy is to contract concessional loans while restricting commercial loans to the financing of infrastructure and self – financing projects. This will help to ensure long term debt sustainability.

 

Medium Term Economic Outlook

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the outlook for our economy is very positive. Economic activity is projected to expand by at least 6 percent next financial year and increase to 7 percent per annum in the medium term. This higher growth will be supported by stronger cash crop yields, through reorganized agricultural activities, ICT, financial services, and efficiency gains from

BUDGET SPEECH

 

public infrastructure investments. In addition, oil production, regional integration, and the completion of many infrastructure projects will further support this higher growth.

 

  1. Government will pursue fiscal and monetary policies that maintain macroeconomic stability and support inclusive growth, while safeguarding debt sustainability.

 

  1. Fiscal policy will continue to support ongoing infrastructure investment and social service delivery. To achieve this, the Domestic Revenue Mobilization Strategy (DRMS) targets a revenue-to-GDP ratio of 16 percent over the medium term. In the long-term, our desired revenue-to-GDP ratio is 18-20%.

 

  1. Structural reforms will focus on enhancing the budget process, public investment management, preparing for oil production including putting in place a strong governance framework for the sector, and strengthening the financial sector.

 

III. Financial Year 2018/19 Budget Strategy

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the Financial Year 2018/19 Budget Strategy seeks to consolidate the gains made by the NRM Government towards the attainment of middle Income status. This objective will meet the aspirations of the Ugandan people and ensure the optimal utilisation of our natural resources. These goals have been captured in the NRM Manifesto, the Vision 2040 and the National Development Plan II, which aim to achieve Prosperity for Ugandans through Job creation and inclusive development.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the Budget Strategy seeks to address the development challenges that I elaborated on earlier and deliver the aspirations of Ugandans in the following key result areas:-

 

  1. Commercialization of Agriculture

 

  1. Industrialization and Productivity enhancement

 

  • Financing Private Sector Investment

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

  1. Madam Speaker, whereas next financial year’s budget will consolidate ongoing investments in the key priorities of Security, Infrastructure and Human Capital development, the Budget Strategy is mainly aiming at spurring Agriculture, Industrialization and Private Sector development.

 

 

Commercialization of Agriculture

 

  1. Madam Speaker, commercializing agriculture raises incomes of Uganda households, addresses the challenge of subsistence, and enhances agricultural productivity, as farmers integrate with agro-manufacturing industries. Integration between agriculture and manufacturing boosts the supply and reliability of agricultural raw materials for the industrial sector; creating jobs for non-farming communities. This will entail the following:-

 

  1. Organizing farmers into producer cooperatives or groups linked to nucleus commercial farmers who will be encouraged to add value to farmers’ produce, put up efficient storage and minimize post-harvest losses;

 

  1. Providing agricultural extension services to improve farming practices and increasing the uptake of appropriate research and technologies;

 

  • Reducing reliance on rain-fed agriculture and mitigating impact of climate change through irrigation, including use of solar powered irrigation pumps, and rain water harvesting;

 

  1. Completing the rural electrification programme to rural growth centers;

 

  1. Strengthening enforcement of regulations for standards and quality assurance;

 

  1. Facilitating market access for agricultural products through export development;

 

 

Industrialisation for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity             11

 

BUDGET SPEECH

 

  • Implementing the National Agriculture Finance Policy that will streamline and guide financing of Agriculture and attract investments into the sector;

 

  • Provision of medium and long term financing from the Agricultural Credit Facility (ACF), the Microfinance Support

 

Center, and the Uganda Development Bank (UDB);

 

  1. Fully implement the subsidized Agriculture Insurance programmes under the Uganda Agriculture Insurance Scheme (UAIS), which provides loss protection from natural disasters for farmers.

 

 

Industrialization and Productivity Enhancement

 

  1. Madam Speaker, competitive industrial development increases the capacity of manufacturing firms to increase productivity.

 

This will entail the following:-

 

  1. Support entrepreneurs in making investments in the manufacture of industrial products;

 

  1. Provision of serviced industrial parks, free zones and dedicated works spaces;

 

  • Continue infrastructure development to reduce costs of electricity, allow efficient market access through reliable road and rail infrastructure development, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) development;

 

  1. Enhance regional market access and trade within the East African Community by implementing uninterrupted border operations, building border markets and removing non-tariff barriers;

 

 

 

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

  1. Diversifying export earnings by developing new export product markets, Europe and Asia included;

 

  1. Align and build skills required for the job market;

 

  • Support science and technology innovation;

 

  • Provision of business and industrial development services such as easy business registration and investor licensing by reducing bureaucracy, and incubation of start-up manufacturing enterprises;

 

  1. Support the use of appropriate technologies.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, agro-Industrialization is an important aspect that will unlock Uganda’s natural potential in agricultural production, while further developing the formal Manufacturing Sector. In addition, it presents an avenue for promoting inclusive and equitable growth, given the dominance of agriculture as the source of livelihood to most Ugandans especially in the rural areas. It also provides sustained and reliable market for agricultural production, while providing jobs to the growing urban population. Agro-industrialization is therefore a key strategic objective that creates the necessary conditions for

 

Uganda’s structural transformation into a high value-added manufacturing economy.

 

 

Financing Private Sector Investment

 

  1. Madam Speaker, addressing constraints to financing the private sector is key to sustainable investment. The following strategy seeks to increase the availability of capital for long term investment:-

 

  1. Continue to capitalize the Uganda Development Bank, and

 

 

 

Industrialisation for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity             13

 

BUDGET SPEECH

 

support its borrowing from International Development Financial institutions to enable the private sector to borrow at low interest rates;

 

  1. Further provide affordable credit through the Microfinance

 

Support Centre to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs);

 

  • Implementing the Capital Markets Master Plan to guide mobilization of long term financing for business and

 

Government infrastructure, including the listing of Public and Private companies on the Uganda Stock Exchange to raise equity financing;

 

  1. Strengthening the Uganda Microfinance Regulatory Authority

 

(UMRA) to eliminate fraud in SACCOs and deal with unethical practices by some money lenders;

 

  1. Remove deficiencies in Uganda’s Anti-Money Laundering and

 

Combating of Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Regime in order to ease correspondent banking; foreign direct investment; and other investments and financial flows between Uganda and the rest of the world.

 

  1. Sector Performance and Strategic Priorities

 

  1. Madam Speaker, I now turn to key sector performance for the Financial Year 2017/18 budget, details of which are in the Background to the Budget. In this regard, I will focus on the performance and respective priority interventions that have been approved in the forth coming Budget.

 

 

Agriculture

 

  1. Madam Speaker, marked progress has been recorded as a result of Government interventions in Coffee and Fish, to mention a

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

few. Coffee exports have increased from 3.6 million 60 kg bags recorded in financial year 2015/16 to 4.14 million bags recorded between July 2017 and May 2018. Increased enforcement of goo fishing practices on water bodies has reversed declining fish stocks and catches. Consequently, fish exports have increased from 18,050 metric tonnes in 2015 to 19,500 metric tonnes in 2016 and Aquaculture is growing at 6% per annum. During the year, other developments in the Agriculture sector include the following:-

 

  1. The NAADS/ Operation Wealth Creation programme continued the distribution of tea, fruit and cocoa seedlings; beans, grain seed including maize, rice and sim-sim to over 3.7 million households. In addition 15,500 households received improved breeding stock for poultry, goat, dairy and beef cattle;

 

  1. The National Agricultural Research Organisation (NARO) developed and released three coffee wilt disease resistant varieties, three banana hybrids, and three fortified bean varieties.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to enhance water for production, the following interventions were implemented during the year:

 

  1. Five newly constructed irrigation schemes were commissioned as follows:- 1,178 hectares at Doho II in Butaleja District, 480 hectares at Mubuku II in Kasese District, 1,000 hectares at Wadelai in Nebbi District, 500 hectares at Torchi in Oyam DIstrict, and 880 hectares at Ngenge in Kween District.

 

  1. Completed construction of 50 small scale irrigation demonstrations and water harvesting sites in selected districts under 9 Zonal Agriculture Research and Development Institutes;

  1. Finalised contracts for design of 5 Multi-purpose storage dams at Kyenshama in Mbarara District, Ojama in Serere District, Makokwa and Kyahi in Gomba District, Geregere in Agago District and Nakaale in Nakapiripirit District.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to achieve higher levels of commercialisation and productivity in agriculture, the key sector priorities Government will focus on next financial year include:-

 

  1. Enhancing extension services by recruiting an additional 1,968 extension workers that are needed to achieve the recommended extension worker/ household ratio of 1:500;

 

  1. Establishment of regional mechanization centers in a phased manner of 3 years commencing with Northern Uganda. These centers will build infrastructure for water for agricultural production, and provide maintenance for agricultural machinery on a cost recovery basis;

 

  • Rehabilitating the National Semi-Arid Agricultural Research Institute at Serere and the Zonal Agricultural Research and

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

Development Institute at Rwebitaba.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, I have allocated Shs. 893 billion to the

 

Agriculture Sector next financial year.

 

 

Tourism

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the tourism sector today earns USD 1.4 billion compared to USD 498.3 Million in 2008. By 2020, tourism is targeted to earn USD 2.7 billion annually and tourist visitors are expected to reach 4 million per year, compared to 1.3 million today.

 

  1. The sustained conservation of our tourism resource is what will guarantee the viability of the sector. Government has therefore intensified land patrols in the national game parks in order protect tourism resources. In addition, Government has engaged communities in proximity to the national parks to ensure heritage conservation.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, over the last year, Uganda was show cased as a tourist destination at three international expos including the China Expo, the World Travel Market (WTM) London, and the International Tourism Fair in Spain (FITUR). The procurement of Market Destination Representation firms has also started to yield tangible results. For instance, the number of tourists from the United States alone increased by 17% in 2016. Additional market representation is being procured to cover other markets like the United Kingdom, Germany, China, United Arab Emirates and Japan.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, promoting domestic tourism is also

 

Government’s priority. Domestic tourism promotional campaigns (Tulambule) and education outreaches on culture, tourism and wildlife conservation were held. The ‘Tulambule

campaign, in addition to the Pearl of Africa Tourism Expo 2018, Miss Tourism Competitions 2017, and activities for Buganda, Busoga and Kigezi clusters continue to register success with more Ugandans increasingly participating across the country. In order to further harness Uganda’s tourism potential and enhance access to tourist sites, maintenance work has been undertaken for a total of 368kms of roads in various National Game Parks and Reserves. This has improved the experience at these game parks.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, to further unlock the Tourism sector’s potential next year, the following priorities will be implemented:-

 

  1. Consolidate the gains realised by Market Destination

 

Representation firms show casing Uganda as a tourist destination in six international fairs;

 

  1. Redevelop tourist infrastructure including the renovation of the Uganda National Museum, building walkways at several sites on Mt Rwenzori and constructing 40-bed accommodation each at Murchsion Falls, Lake Mburo and Kidepo Valley;

  1. MadamSpeaker,thecommercializationofoilprovidesenormous opportunities for Ugandans for jobs and the private sector, with respect to the supply of required inputs and services. Building capacity of local companies to participate in commercialization of oil is therefore a key concern. Government has provided the necessary procurement rules and regulations to ensure the promotion of local content in the Oil and Gas Sector. I appeal to the private sector to fully take advantage of this policy.

 

 

Electricity

 

  1. Madam Speaker, over the years, Government has invested heavily in power generation. Substantial progress has been made with total energy generation growing by 8% since 2009. This Energy mix of generation capacity includes small and large hydro plants and Thermal power generators. As a result, current power generation is estimated at 930 MW. An additional

Social Empowerment

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to empower key social groups,

 

Government has implemented affirmative programmes for the

 

Youth, Women and Elderly. The Youth Livelihood Programme has funded over 14,200 projects benefiting 165,500 youth of which 45% are females. The projects funded are majorly in the Agriculture (38%), Trade (29%), and Services (17%). The

 

Uganda Women Entrepreneurship Fund has financed over 6,000 projects benefitting 76,000 women. 42% of the projects are in wholesale and retail trade and 33% in agriculture.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to improve the livelihoods of the senior citizens, the Social Assistance Grant for Empowerment (SAGE) was established to support the elderly. The programme is currently being implemented in 47 districts. Over 157,000 senior citizens are benefitting. The elderly on the programme spend most of their grants on food, health care, and education with significant improvements in their nutritional status, health, and well-being of recipients and their household members.

The construction of justice centers, which provide a one stop center for operations of the Uganda Police, Directorate for Public

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

Prosecutions and the Judicairy, was completed in Mitooma, Kyenjojo and Lamwo. In addition, the Kitalya Medium Security Prison is 62% complete.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in the next year, priorities to increase access to Justice include the automation of Court Administration System, construction of 4 new justice centers in Amudat, Kyegegwa, Butambala, Namaiyingo Districts and the regional Justice Law and Order Sector House in Fort Portal. Construction of the Justice Law and Order House at Naguru will also be fast-tracked.

 

  1. In addition, the Safe City project involving installation of Close Circuit Television (CCTVs) will be implemented to improve security. A Regional Forensic Referral Center (RFRCs), the Crime Record Management System (CRMS), and enhanced training of investigators will also be implemented to improve the capacity of the Uganda Police to deal with crime.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, with respect to citizenship and immigration, over 23 million Ugandans have been registered, with 17 million receiving their National Identity Cards. Next financial year, e-Passports and the automation of Work Permits, Visas and Passes will be implemented to improve the quality of our immigration services.

Officers provide accountability, failure of which non-compliant Accounting Officers will have their appointments revoked, in accordance with the Public Finance Management Act 2015.

 

 

Industrialisation for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity             37

 

BUDGET SPEECH

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Salary and Pension reforms that have been implemented over the last three years have yielded tremendous results. The monthly payment of salaries and pensions has been streamlined. Almost all pension and gratuity arrears have been cleared apart for those of the military and ex-service men. However, there are some indisciplined Accounting

 

Officers who continue to recruit staff without Budget funds, or who divert funds meant to pay salaries, wages, pensions and gratuity arrears. I have directed the Secretary to the Treasury to ruthlessly deal with these Accounting Officers.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, implementation of Government projects continues to be undermined by lack of readiness by Ministries, Agencies and Local Governments. Delays in procurements, late acquisition of right of way and poor contract management are major causes of low absorption of funds. In order to improve management of public projects next financial year, all on-going projects will be reviewed and those which are not consistent with the National Development Plan will be removed from the Public Investment Plan. The approval of projects will be pegged to those that are well appraised and ready for implementation before they are allocated resources in the Budget. Project monitoring will also be strengthened to ensure timely execution and value for money.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, to reduce the cost of Public Administration particularly on rent, construction of the Dar es Salaam Chancery was completed. Construction of the Uganda Embassy in Bujumbura also commenced. The Uganda Revenue Authority offices are nearing completion.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, next financial year, construction of Parliament will continue and civil works for the Inspectorate of Government, the Public Procurement and Disposal of Assets Authority,

 

Uganda Road Fund headquarters and the Government Office

Campus at Bwebajja, will commence.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, creation of new administrative units such as new Agencies, Public Universities, Local Government Structures including Sub-counties and Town Councils continue to strain meager public resources. Government will review this Policy with the view of halting creation of new administrative units to allow funding for priority programs in Infrastructure development and service delivery.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, over the years, the level of financing of Local

 

Governments to deliver basic services has been considered inadequate and inequitable. To mitigate against this, Inter-Government Fiscal Transfers will be reformed to enhance adequacy and equity of resources sent to Local Governments.

 

Next financial year, the Education and Health sectors will be piloted in this reform. Furthermore, a new Local Government Assessment System will be implemented to review performance and identify areas for improvement.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, direct transfer to Education and Health institutions, Sub-counties, Town Councils and Municipal divisions is being implemented. This removes delays in receipt of funds by implementing units, and minimizes diversion of funds. However, some Local Government Accounting Officers with grants that are not under the direct transfer policy do not transfer funds to the cost centers in a timely manner. Next financial year, disciplinary action will be taken against those Accounting Officers who do not immediately transfer funds to cost centers.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, in order to improve the focus on results, Program Based Budgeting was instituted and successfully rolled out during the year to all Ministries, Agencies and Local Governments. Program Based Budgeting directly links results to

outputs and related budgets, in order to provide accountability for resources provided.

 

  1. Medium Term Revenue and Expenditure Framework Domestic Revenue Mobilization

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Uganda’s tax revenue effort at 14% of GDP remains low and inadequate to finance our development needs.

Accordingly, the Domestic Revenue Mobilization strategy will address policy, technical and administrative issues in enhancing tax and non-tax revenue collection. The strategy will be completed in September 2018 to guide implementation in Financial year 2019/20

  1. Madam Speaker, total tax and non-tax revenue is estimated to amount to Shs 14.4 Trillion this financial year. Over the past decade, tax revenue has been growing at an average rate of

 

17% per annum, raising from Shs 3.1 Trillion in financial year

 

2007/08.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Non Tax Revenue collections for this year is estimated at Shs 430.4 billion against the target of Shs 380 billion. This performance is attributed to efficiency in NTR collections as a result of the decision by Government that all Non-Tax revenues be collected by Uganda Revenue Authority effective 1st July 2017. The decision enhanced transparency in NTR collections as well as ease of monitoring.

 

Revenue Outlook

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Parliament reviewed and approved tax measures in accordance with Article 152 of the constitution. Among these include technical amendments aimed at bringing

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

more clarity to the laws to minimize unnecessary disputes between taxpayers and the authority, dealing with issues of tax avoidance, in addition to modest adjustments in tax rates meant to generate revenue and also keeping some taxes in consonance with inflation.

 

  1. Consequently, total domestic revenue is projected to be 16.4

 

Trillion in financial year 2018/19, an increase of Shs 1.9 Trillion over this financial year. This will raise the ratio of revenue to

 

GDP from 14.2% this year to 14.6%.

 

Investment Incentives

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Government has introduced incentives to promote both domestic and foreign investment. These incentives focus on industrialization with the objective of job creation, value addition to local raw materials, export promotion, and promotion of tourism.

 

  1. Among others, these include incentives for investments in the development of industrial parks or free zones, establishment of new factories, and development of hotels and tourist facilities. Details can be found in the tax bills.

 

Tax Administration

 

  1. Madam Speaker, Government has been implementing a Policy on tax inclusive budgeting for both recurrent and development expenditures. However, some Accounting Officers do not remit taxes to Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) after deducting PAYE or other withholding taxes. This practice is illegal. Therefore, any Government Institution which does not remit taxes to Uganda Revenue Authority will be treated as any other tax defaulter and URA is hereby authorized to deal with all such defaulters. To reiterate, Accounting Officers will be held

BUDGET SPEECH

 

personally responsible for tax default in accordance with the law.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, one of the major challenges undermining our tax effort is tax evasion. For example, about 30% of eligible VAT is not collected, translating into a loss of about 4% of tax to GDP. VAT evasion involves the fraudulent use of non-existent transactions claiming input tax against purchases and expenses that were not incurred, and issuance of invoices for business transactions for which there is no genuine supply/movement of goods and services. So far, URA has recovered Shs. 605 billion from companies evading tax and another 2,100 companies are undergoing comprehensive review to determine the liabilities not yet paid. Other measures include cancellation of the tax registration of taxpayers involved in VAT fraud, and revocation of all Tax Clearance Certificates issued to the taxpayers involved including blacklisting them for PPDA purposes.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, to strengthen tax administration, URA will continue to implement the following measures:-

 

  1. Strengthen business intelligence and risk management functions to detect non-compliance;

 

  1. Expand the revenue management system to other revenue geographical areas beyond Kampala;

 

  • Enhance tax arrears management;

 

  1. Increase tax intelligence operations to curb smuggling;

 

  1. Deployment of container scanners at the major entry stations to facilitate faster clearance of goods;

 

  1. Increase of risk based post clearance audits targeting specific sectors;

 

 

  • Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development

 

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2018/19

 

  • Implement strict procedures for collection of rental tax;

 

viii.   Implement use of digital tax stamps to enhance compliance in payment of duties on excisable goods.

 

Tax Appeals Tribunal

 

  1. Madam Speeker, the Tax Appeals Tribunal is a quasi- judicial body charged with dispensing justice in the field of tax. The

 

Act was amended to provide for mediation as a mechanism for resolution of tax disputes. The Tribunal has also been empowered to award damages and interest and to allow the Registrar to handle provisional applications during the conduct of legal cases.

 

Resource Envelope

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the resource envelope for Financial Year 2018/19 is as follows:-:

 

  1. Domestic Revenue amounting to Shs 16,358.8 Billion of which Shs 15,938.8 Billion will be collected by URA as tax revenue and Shs 420 Billion as Non Tax Revenue;

 

  1. Domestic borrowing amount to Shs 1,783.4 Billion;

 

  • Budget Support amounting to Shs 289 Billion;

 

  1. External financing for projects amounting to 7,734.5 Billion of which Shs 6,148.9 Billion is in loans, and Shs 1,585.6 Billion is grants;

 

  1. Appropriation in Aid, collected by Government departments amounting to Shs 1,063.5 Billion; and

 

  1. Domestic Debt Re-financing will amount to 5,271.5 Billion.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the total resource envelope has been allocated

 

 

 

Industrialisation for Job Creation and Shared Prosperity             43

 

BUDGET SPEECH

 

to budget expenditure and amounts to Shs. 32,702.8 Billion. VI. Conclusion

 

  1. Madam Speaker, the NRM Government’s bold steps taken to invest in security and infrastructure development have set the stage for faster and sustained economic growth in Uganda. The Financial Year 2018/19 Budget goes further to support areas that will deliver inclusive growth especially in Agriculture and its value chain, as this is the anchor for our quest for Industrialisation.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, reorienting existing Agriculture sector programmes will spur the much needed transformation. Adapting new technologies, reducing the dependence on rain fed agriculture by using solar powered pumps for irrigation will trigger all-year round production. This will enable households to improve production and productivity. As a consequence, incomes will rise, new jobs will be created thus leading to sustained growth and development.

 

  1. I implore the country’s leadership at all levels to mobilize the population to seize the opportunity to meaningfully engage in production for their improved welfare.

 

  1. Madam Speaker, I beg to submit.
