In response to a request from the Bank of Uganda (BOU) and in consultation with the African Department of the IMF, a mission visited Kampala, Uganda during March 7-11, 2016, to provide technical assistance (TA) on sectoral financial accounts. This mission followed up on a previous mission in January 2015 and the report builds on technical assistance provided on i) National Accounts (2015); ii) Balance of Payments (2013); iii) Monetary and Financial Statistics (2012 and 2015); and iv) Government Finance Statistics (2014).
The mission reviewed the sectoral financial stocks and transactions data for 2014 and noted that commendable progress has been made in compilation of annual financial accounts. The mission provided suggestions for public release of annual data for the years 2013, 2014, and 2015 by September 30, 2016. With this release of data, Uganda will be the first non-G 20 country in Africa to disseminate sectoral financial stocks and transactions data.
