THE SIMPLIFIED COMMON MARKET PROTOCOL
The East African Business Council (EABC) has created a Simplified Common Market Protocol (SCMP) in straightforward English to make it easier for East Africans who do not have a legal background to understand what the East African Community (EAC) Common Market Protocol (CMP) means as well as how it will affect them. This SCMP targets the business community in East Africa.
It is incredibly important that all East Africans get to understand the rights they now enjoy as nationals of the Partner States that form the EAC Common Market and that they begin using those benefits to co-operate with other East Africans and to share in the results. Further, it is the hope of not only EABC but more importantly, the governments of all five East African Partner States that the Common Market will result in accelerated economic and social growth and development in the region.
