Feds Seeks Help in Spending Billions in Uganda More Effectively (U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor)

My latest from U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor:

The U.S. government plans to spend another $1 billion in Uganda through 2015 -- and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will devote an additional $17.5 million specifically towards helping its Uganda unit to become more "adaptive, modern" and "effective." 

The $1 billion figure is part of the Obama Administration's $3.5 billion 2011-2015 Ugandan strategy, which aims to cut that nation's poverty in half.
