Louis Kasekende: Agricultural financing in Uganda

Remarks by Dr Louis Kasekende, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Uganda, at the High-Level Meeting on Agricultural Financing in Uganda, Kampala, 30 August 2016.

The Rt. Hon. Prime-Minister, Hon. Ministers (present and past), Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good morning! In my remarks, I wish to highlight the numerous policy interventions and schemes undertaken by the Government of Uganda since the 1960s particularly those that had the banking industry actively involved; identify what I think is the most optimal strategy for agricultural modernization, and third, is to reiterate what I envisage as the appropriate role for the state in agricultural financing.
