UGANDA

@Uganda:Introduction

Background: Uganda achieved independence from the UK in 1962. The
dictatorial regime of Idi AMIN (1971-79) was responsible for the
deaths of some 300,000 opponents; guerrilla war and human rights
abuses under Milton OBOTE (1980-85) claimed another 100,000 lives.
During the 1990s the government has promulgated non-party presidential
and legislative elections.

@Uganda:Economy

Economy - overview: Uganda has substantial natural resources,
including fertile soils, regular rainfall, and sizable mineral
deposits of copper and cobalt. Agriculture is the most important
sector of the economy, employing over 80% of the work force. Coffee is
the major export crop and accounts for the bulk of export revenues.
Since 1986, the government - with the support of foreign countries and
international agencies - has acted to rehabilitate and stabilize the
economy by undertaking currency reform, raising producer prices on
export crops, increasing prices of petroleum products, and improving
civil service wages. The policy changes are especially aimed at
dampening inflation and boosting production and export earnings. In
1990-99, the economy turned in a solid performance based on continued
investment in the rehabilitation of infrastructure, improved
incentives for production and exports, reduced inflation, gradually
improved domestic security, and the return of exiled Indian-Ugandan
entrepreneurs. Ongoing Ugandan involvement in the war in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo, growing corruption within the
government, and slippage in the government's determination to press
reforms raise doubts about the continuation of strong growth.

UKRAINE

@Ukraine:Introduction

Background: Richly endowed in natural resources, Ukraine has been
fought over and subjugated for centuries; its 20th-century struggle
for liberty is not yet complete. A short-lived independence from
Russia (1917-1920) was followed by brutal Soviet rule that engineered
two artificial famines (1921-22 and 1932-33) in which over 8 million
died, and World War II, in which German and Soviet armies were
responsible for some 7 million more deaths. Although independence was
attained in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR, true freedom
remains elusive as many of the former Soviet elite remain entrenched,
stalling efforts at economic reform, privatization, and civic
liberties.
