EAC competition authority to start operations in July

Published on June 20, 2016

The East African Community Competition Authority (EACCA) will be operational from July with a mandate to curb unfair trade practices in the region and protect consumers from substandard goods.

The authority will restrict trade practices and transactions that unduly limit fair competition. 

Tanzania’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and East African Co-operation Susan Kolimba said,

The EACCA will commence operations in the 2016/2017 financial year and will act as a one-stop-centre in the enforcement of its provisions.
