Uganda Defense Spending
Sources: The Library of Congress Country Studies; CIA World Factbook
From 1975 to 1985, Uganda's reported military expenditures averaged less than 3 percent of gross national product ( GNP--see Glossary) and ranged between 14 and 30 percent of government spending. Arms imports multiplied eight-fold between 1977 and 1982, however, from about US$8 million to US$65 million, measured in constant United States dollars. Expenditures then declined to an annual average of US$11 million between 1983 and 1986 and increased slightly in 1987. In 1988-89, the government allocated US$40.7 million to the military. This represented a larger portion of government spending than in other East African countries but substantially less in absolute terms than defense spending by those governments.
