The first twenty-five years of Uganda's independence from British colonial rule were characterized by internal conflicts, dictatorship, and economic disintegration. Since then, the country has benefited from relative political and economic stability and economic growth. Advancing the Ugandan Economy is an account of the remarkable policy changes that took place from 1986 to 2012 and their effect in contrast with the turbulent, violent events after independence.
Author Ezra Suruma demonstrates that African countries can achieve economic stability and sustain rapid growth when they meet at least two interdependent conditions: establishing a stable and secure political framework and unleashing the entrepreneurialism of the populace. He also highlights the strategic areas that still require fundamental reform if Uganda is to become a modern state.
Rarely in African history has so much positive political and economic transformation of a country been achieved in such a short time. Suruma's account of the commitment, determination, vision, and dexterity of the Ugandan government holds invaluable lessons in managing the still complex policy challenges facing the African continent.
