Rice_Study.JPGImplementation of Trade Policy Instruments on Rice Trade in the East African Community is a study by the USAID East Africa Trade and Investment Hub. This study highlights the impact of EAC trade policy instruments, including Common External Tariffs (CET) on sensitive products, stay of application of the CET, duty remission scheme and application of waivers for food security concerns on Tanzania’s rice trade in the region. It also reveals variance in applicable duty rates on rice as a sensitive product across some of the EAC Partner States.
