Video: Supporting the implementation of the U.S.-EAC Cooperation Agreement

Published on August 19, 2015

With a view to increasing exports, expanding investment, and helping support job creation and economic growth in the East African Community (EAC) and the United States, the Partner States of the EAC (Burundi, Kenya,  Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) and the U.S., in February 2015, entered into an agreement to improve cooperation on trade facilitation, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and technical barriers to trade.

On August 14, representatives from the U.S. Government and the East African Community held a meeting to discuss and formalize, in detail, the implementation of the co-operation agreement. The East Africa Trade and Investment Hub is actively supporting the EAC to take advantage of the agreement in a bid to boost trade and investment with the U.S. and within East Africa.
