Fuel, in­dus­trial equip­ment, chem­i­cals and mo­tor ve­hi­cles con­trib­uted the lion’s share of pri­vate sec­tor im­ports in the year end­ing Oc­to­ber 2018. The govern­ment through the Na­tional Drug Au­thor­ity im­ported mainly essen­tial drugs and ma­chin­ery for road projects. Key in­fra­struc­ture projects that have been com­mis­sioned in re­cent times in­clude the 41km Masaka-bukakata road; the first phase of a 3.5km Kam­pala fly­over project whose con­struc­tion works are to be com­pleted in 2021 and the Ka­nungu-ki­hihi-ishasharukun­giri road project whose con­struc­tion is ex­pected to take three years.
