November 2017 marked 20 years since the establishment of East African Business Council (EABC). The council is not only recognized as the apex body of the private sector across the East African Community but was also granted observer status on all matters regional integration.
The Observer status enables EABC to attend and participate in all relevant EAC deliberations and activities not only at the Secretariat level but also with other organs and institutions. EABC therefore provides a regional platform through which the business community can present their concerns at the EAC policy level, with the overall aim of creating a more conducive business environment through targeted policy reforms.
To this end, EABC will host a high level two-day Conference and Exhibition themed ‘Beyond East Africa – Moving from Aspiration to Action’ scheduled to be held on March 22 - 23, 2018, at the Kenyatta International Conference Center.
