Strengthening private sector engagement in policy making in Zanzibar

Published on May 20, 2016

The Hub will facilitate its fifth Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) meeting in support of implementation of the EAC Common Market Protocol, this time in Zanzibar on May 26. The meeting, to be hosted by the Zanzibar National Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture, in conjunction with the Hub, will review the implementation status of the Common Market and Customs Union, and explore opportunities for stronger private sector participation in the rule-making, implementation and monitoring processes of these trade instruments.

Participating in the meeting will be representatives from private sector associations and from the public sector, mainly drawn from institutions with implementation and monitoring responsibilities for the protocol.

The Hub, through its trade policy component, facilitates increased regional trade and investment through accelerated implementation of the EAC Common Market requirements related to the free movement of capital, services and goods.
