The East African Community (EAC) integration process is based on a market-driven cooperation (EAC Treaty 1999, Art 7), thereby placing the EAC private sector at the heart of the EAC strategy to attain sustainable growth and development of the region. As part of its 20th Anniversary Celebrations, the East African Business Council (EABC) intends to bring to the fore this critical role of the private sector in the EAC through the launching of the EABC Business Excellence Awards (EABC BEAs).

The EABC BEAs, which will be biennial, seek to reinforce the critical role of the private sector and to recognise and celebrate businesses from Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda that demonstrate exceptional business performance in accelerating regional growth, creating wealth and employment and reducing poverty across the region. As the only regional business awards, the EABC-BEAs provide businesses in East Africa an opportunity to compete for the ultimate business accolade at the EAC level. .

The inaugural EABC BEAs are expected to be launched on 3rd October 2017 and unveiled at a Gala Dinner to be held on 1st December 2017 at the Nairobi Intercontinental Hotel. The dinner is expected to be graced by high level public and private sector dignitaries from across the EAC.
