EABC CALLS FOR EAC COORDINATED APPROACH TO REGIONAL AIR SERVICES   RE-OPENING

  • Re-open regional air transport services to spur intra-EAC trade

 

Saturday, 1st August 2020, Arusha, Tanzania: - The East African Business Council (EABC) calls for an East African Community (EAC) coordinated approach on the resumption of regional air services to spur intra-EAC trade and revive the tourism and hospitality sector heavily hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The East African Business Council congratulates Kenya and Rwanda as they resume international flights today, 1st August 2020.  Tanzania resumed international flights on the 18th of May 2020. These are important steps towards the recovery of the aviation and tourism sectors, however, the differences emerging in regional air transport services among some partner states are set to adversely affect the rebound of business in the region.  

 

Intra EAC trade stood at $5.98 billion in 2018 (EAC Trade and Investment Report). With the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, regional trade is expected to decline by 50 percent this year.  According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the EAC Partner States will potentially lose upwards of US$5.4 billion of tourist local spending for the year 2020 under scenarios of protracted closures and restrictions of seaports and airports. The impact of COVID-19 has led to a decline in the number of air passengers hence appx. US$0.54 billion revenue loss was projected in Kenya risking 137,965 jobs while US$20.4 million base revenues loss, risking 3,000 jobs was projected in Rwanda.

 

The re-opening of regional air transport services will integrate the regional logistics value chains for increased exports of fresh produce, regional tourism and enable service providers to tap into the larger EAC market. This is set to bolster business continuity and resilience to sustain livelihoods and jobs.

The East African Business Council urges, the EAC Partner States to prioritize and fast-track the unconditional re-opening of regional air transport services and agree on an EAC coordinated approach on the opening of the regional aviation sector, in line with the World Health Organisation guidelines and measures.

In addition, the EAC Partner States should consider temporarily granting the Yamoussoukro Decision (YD) 5th to 9th   Freedom rights to effectively increase capacity, reduce inefficiencies and costs; waive landing fees, excise duty on aviation fuel, navigation, landing, parking and COVID-19 related fees to reduce operating costs; and the reduction of permit and fees for service providers from the EAC region.

EABC - The Voice of the Private Sector in East Africa

EABC ENDORSES AMB. AMINA MOHAMED FOR THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION POSITION


Thursday, 23rd July 2020, Arusha, Tanzania: - The East African Business Council endorses the nomination of Ambassador Amina Mohammed, for the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Director-General position.


“The WTO’s role in the liberalization of global trade is central towards the growth trade, investments and competitiveness of the EAC bloc in the international arena. In 2017, EAC bloc earned USD. 25.1 billion from the export of goods and services to the world and imported USD. 39 billion,” said Dr. Peter Mathuki, CEO East African Business Council.
Ambassador Amina Mohamed joining the WTO will be timely as Africa is keenly focusing on the African Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). She is a strong advocate for the actualization of the AfCFTA and has also chaired the WTO’s 10th Ministerial Conference held in Nairobi in 2015, the Dispute Settlement Body and the WTO’s General Council in 2005, her passion for international trade, exemplary strategic leadership, diplomatic and negotiation skills maker her the right candidate for the job.


Her success to the position will be a great opportunity for the EAC bloc and Africa towards championing global economic policy to increase the continent’s share in global trade.
“The business community in East Africa is assured that Amb. Mohamed will steer the WTO to greater heights. As a former Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade of the Republic of Kenya she is bold and proficient, it will be an honour for the continent to have the first African and first woman as the Director-General of the WTO,” said Dr. Mathuki. Amb. Mohamed will ably push for the full implementation of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement which will reduce trade transaction costs for businesses, by cutting red tape, simplifying and streamlining customs procedures for exports and imports. The WTO is mandated to administer trade agreements, trade negotiations, settling trade disputes, reviewing national trade policies, building the trade capacity of developing economies and cooperating with other international organizations. Africa’s active and strategic participation in the negotiations at WTO is vital to unlock the economic potential of the continent and increase access to international markets.

EABC Brief on EAC Gazette


EAC Partner States Adopt Import Duty Measures to Boost Local Production Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic 
EAC Partner States i.e. Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda have adopted various measures on EAC Common External Tariff (CET) with the aim of boosting local production in the region. The new import tax changes will be effective in the new fiscal year which commences on 1st July 2020 after being approved during the Pre-Budget Consultations of the Ministers/Cabinet Secretary of Finance that was held via video conference on 13th May 2020.


The EAC Ministers have been holding the Pre-budget Consultations prior to reading the National budgets as a way of harmonizing fiscal measures in the region. The decisions of the Ministers/Cabinet Secretary for Finance on the CET measures were finally endorsed by the meeting of the Sectoral Council on Trade, Industry, Finance and Investment (SCTIFI) on 3
rd June 2020 via video conference.


The import duty measures in the EAC Gazette which was issued on 30
th June 2020 can be put into three main categories which are Duty Remission for Industrial Inputs, Stays of Application, and Amendments of the East African Community Customs Management Act, 2004. The duty remission measures adopted by the EAC Partner States will ensurethat local manufacturers can import raw materials and inputs which are not available in the region at a lower rate. These duty remission measures are strictly specific for the gazetted manufacturers who have applied for the importation of a specific amount of input/ product at the reduced import duty rate. The Stays of Application measures that are instituted on final products are reported in two scenarios. First, where EAC Partner States agreed to stay application of the EAC CET rate and apply a higher duty rate for the imported products. The second scenario is where EAC Partner States agreed to stay application of the EAC CET rate and apply a lower duty rate for imported products.


The decisions by the EAC Partner States to stay application of the EAC CET rate and apply a higher duty rate are aiming at stimulating local production by safeguarding manufacturing of that particular product against similar cheap imports. Some of the products include textile (garments) and textile products; leather (shoes) and leather products; edible oil; tiles, processed tea; coffee & cocoa; meat & meat products; and steel articles, iron & metal products. 


The decision by EAC Partner States to stay application of the EAC CET Rate and apply a lower duty rate was informed by the fact that the region has no sufficient capacity to produce that particular product hence the need to protect East Africans against a higher import duty. This second scenario of stay of application was applied to a few products such as mobile phones, rice in the husk, semi milled or wholly milled rice, sugar, wheat, and barley. Analysis indicates that the existence of the Stays of Application and Country’s Specific Duty Remission in the current EAC Gazette aims at cushioning vulnerable sectors/products, protect local industries as well as enhance local manufacturing and production for those products that the EAC region has the capacity to produce.


Since most of EAC Partner States opted for stay of application of the EAC CET and applied higher duty rates ranging from 35% to 60%, it gives a positive indication that EAC Partner States may soon conclude the comprehensive review of EAC CET as countries have shown some commonalities on the maximum tariff or the level of protection they require
. In addition, the ranges of CET measures contained in the EAC Gazette are in line with the EABC Budget Proposals which were submitted to the EAC Secretariat. All EABC customs proposals on duty remission and stay of applications were adopted by EAC Partner States at different degrees/levels.


However, one of the critical challenges arising from the existence of numerous Stays of Application and Country’s Duty Remission is an impediment to the intra-EAC trade as the finished products that benefit from these measures cannot access the regional market at preferential tariff treatment
. This is due to the fact that all finished products which benefit from the Country’s Duty Remission once sold in the EAC customs territory shall attract duties, levies and other charges provided in the EAC CET. Furthermore, these measures erode the EAC CET as a uniform policy against imported products into EAC market. To address this critical challenge, EABC urges the EAC Partner States to fast track the finalization of the comprehensive review of the EAC CET so that all countries can uniformly apply the new agreed CET.


The EAC CET is considered as a very important instrument of EAC Customs Protocol as it reflects the trade relations between EAC Partner States and the Rest of the World (RoW) with regards to the import duties charged on imported products into the Community. The implementation of the EAC CET commenced in 2005 after the EAC Customs Union Protocol came into force. The EAC CET is currently structured under three bands of 25% for finished goods, 10% for intermediate goods and 0% for raw materials and capital goods. In addition, there are a limited number of products under the sensitive list that attract rates above the maximum rate of 25% whereby they range from 35% to 100%.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT

Tourism is considered as one of the largest foreign exchange earners and fastest-growing sectors in the EAC. According to the Report by EALA on tourism development in the EAC-2018, tourist arrivals in the EAC region increased from 3.5 million persons in 2006 to 5.7 million persons in 2017. Tourism contributed to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the EAC Partner States by an average of 12% in 2017. The percentage contribution was higher than the average in Rwanda (14.9 %), Kenya (10%) and Tanzania (14%), Uganda (9.9%), Burundi (4.3%). Tourism contributes an average of 18.8% to EAC total exports, although the percentage contribution was higher, in Rwanda (30.5%) and Tanzania (26%). The total contributions of tourism to export earnings were at 1.5% for Burundi, 18% for Kenya, and 17.9% for Uganda.

 

The sector’s contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the EAC Partner States is estimated to be an average of 8.8%. The contribution is highest in Rwanda (12.7%), followed by Kenya (9.7%) and Tanzania (9%). 

 

However, with the first case of COVID-19 reported in the East African Community in February 2020, these figures have drastically declined since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is estimated that EAC Partner States will potentially lose International Tourism Receipts in the tune USD 5.4 Billion for the year 2020, given the projected long-term closure of seaports and airports. About 6.2 Million foreign tourists may not travel to their preferred EAC destinations. The trickle-down effects will be felt across affiliated industries and the rest of the economy.

 

The COVID-19 impact on tourism in the EAC has also been significant with the decline in Safaris expeditions, Cut-Back operations in the Hospitality Industry including Closure of Hotels & Recreational Centres, Loss of Revenue for East African Airlines and Loss of Jobs for the thousands employed by the sector. The breadth and scale on the impact of COVID-19 to the sector and directly affiliated industries has also resulted in the cancellation of (Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing & Exhibitions) MICE, nationally, regionally and worldwide

 

Considering the unparalleled and fast-evolving nature of the crisis, it is extremely challenging to estimate the impact of COVID-19 on international tourism. Based on the latest developments (quarantine measures, travel bans & border closures in most of Europe and in many countries of the Americas, Africa and the Middle East), the evolutions in Asia and the Pacific and the patterns of previous crises (2003 SARS and 2009 global economic crisis), UNWTO estimates international tourist arrivals could decline by 20% to 30% in 2020. This would, therefore, translate into a loss of 300 to 450 US$ billion in international tourism receipts (exports), which is almost one-third of the US$ 1.5 trillion generated globally in the worst-case scenario.

 

 

The East African Business Council (EABC) is thereby concerned with the disruptions in the tourism sector as a major contributor to the economic development of the EAC Partner States as well as one of the biggest employers of the East Africans. To enhance Public and Private Dialogue on the tourism industry and ensure a steady recovery of the sector, EABC with support from TradeMark East Africa, desires to undertake an assessment of COVID-19 pandemic on the tourism sector in the East African Community and consequently chart out post-recovery recommendations for the sector in the region.
