18 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 03 April 2013

In Uganda we look at the benefits and the dangers that oil could hold for the country. And how young entrepreneurs there are making the most of the fruits of the earth. We also examine the county's plans to turn some of its natural resources into high end products. In this programme we hear from Angelo Izama
Ugandan journalist, writer and analyst. He's currently researching the political economy of Uganda's oil sector.
We also speak to Fred Muhumuza an Economic Advisor to the Ugandan Ministry of Finance. But oil isn't all the country has to offer A group of entrepreneur students at Makerere University and their Professor John Muyonga tells us about the future of food. And Molly Byandusya of Masterwood Investments shows us around her family's wood factory on the outskirts of Kampala.
