Sobre Uganda

Uganda gained independence from Britain on 9 October 1962 as a Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. One year later, Uganda became a republic but maintained its membership in the Commonwealth of Nations. The country has been experiencing consistent economic growth. In 2015-16, Uganda recorded gross domestic product growth of 4.6 percent in real terms. However, despite making enormous progress in reducing the countrywide poverty incidence from 56 percent of the population in 1992 to 24.5 percent in 2009, poverty remains deep-rooted in the country's rural areas, which are home to 84 percent of Ugandans.
