The EABC in partnership with EAC is organizing the EAC High-Level Conference on regional trade integration as part of the activities to commemorate the 20th  Anniversary of the East African Community and the 15th  Anniversary of Implementing the EAC Customs Union. The theme of the conference is “Enhancing Trade Integration in the East African Community” and will take place on 25th -27th September at Radisson Blu Hotel (new Venue) in Nairobi, Kenya. 

The conference is expected to attract over 300 key players from the East African Region, International & Regional Economic Communities, exhibitors, stakeholders and Government Officials.

The objectives of the conference are to:

  • Showcase the state of play of the EAC Customs Union
  • Discuss and chart out policy, strategic direction and positioning of the EAC in the context of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA); and
  • Build linkages of the key players to generate practical interventions to address Barriers to Trade, Investment and Industry.

The Conference will offer the opportunity to assess the progress, discuss challenges and propose the way forward for the full-fledged Customs Union. It will provide a platform to examine the adequacy of the legal, institutional and policy framework, the resource and technological capacity as well as collaboration with the private sector in defining the future of the Customs Union as a pivot in the integration of the region.
