Rules of Origin need to be simple and user-friendly in order for traders to be able to take advantage of benefits given by regional integration and other trade arrangements. Clear understanding of the basis of the Rules of Origin, applications are an important factor in strengthening regional trade and integration. In short, without the knowledge of practical application of the Rules of Origin, regional trade is at risk of being hampered.

In addition, the different trade regimes, EAC, SADC and COMESA Rules of Origin are complicated and conflicting to one another. Consequently, a large part of East African traders have not been able to tape the opportunities provided by these trade regimes, which are not only clear to majority of the private sector but also their understanding and application is complicated and technical.

Currently, the East African Community (EAC) is involved in various trade negotiations in order to boost the region’s share of the global
trade. These initiatives include the recently concluded Economic Partnership Agreement with the European Union, the U.S.–EAC Trade
and Investment Partnership, and the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite Free Trade Area. All, this is geared towards improving steadily
the EAC total trade with the rest of the world which experienced an upward trend by recording a growth of 8.3 percent to US$ 47,365.4 million in 2013 compared to US$ 43,740.5 million in 2012. Although, the share of total trade with the rest of the World to total EAC trade declined marginally to 89.7 percent in 2013 compared to 90.7 percent in 2012, recording a deficit of US$ 19,566.6 million compared to a deficit of US$ 17,410.8 million in 2012.In regard to intra-EAC trade, this continued to exhibit a positive trend by recording a growth of 6.1 percent to US$ 5,805.6 million in 2013 compared to US$ 5,470.7 million in 2012.
