East Africa Trade Week

In hosting the East Africa Trade Week, our primary objective is to promote economic growth in the region and the continent, at large, through the network of Chambers of Commerce and business associations and to advance the East African Community (EAC) regional integration as well as Africa-wide development agenda, as championed by the African Union Commission (AUC), notably, the Boosting of Intra-African Trade (BIAT) to accelerate and deepen the con t's market integration by ensuring that we realize the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) agenda. The continental chambers of commerce and industry, through the Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PACCI) are some of the key drivers of CFTA. The objective of the EATW is to promote investment and trade through partnerships and joint ventures in key sectors such as agriculture and agro-allied ventures, financial services, small and medium enterprises, textiles and infrastructure. It will institutionalize strategic economic partnership between the East African Community member States, rest of Africa and Globe. It is seen as the beginning of a long-term strategic partnership between the rest of the Continent and East Africa with the rest of the globe for mutual benefits.  The target countries are Burundi, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda, in the Eastern Africa region. The EATW will also feature some national and regional project portfolios with regional investment and export trade opportunities that require international financing and partnerships.

East African Business Guide

Editorial Foreword From Mr. Charles KAHUTHU - CEO We welcome you to this first edition of the East African Business Guide. We shall endeavour to tell the good story of public private partnership and the integration agenda through this publication. We are witnessing interesting developments and the region’s geopolitical environment is fast evolving. This publication will provide a platform and a mouth piece for stakeholders and members of the national chambers to articulate various issues in the region, such as Infrastructure development, trade facilitation and the integration agenda, among many others. Our Cover Story in the inaugural edition is centred on the delivery of infrastructure in the region which is a fundamental prerequisite in facilitating business transactions. We have also expanded our horizon and looked at issues that do impact on the African continent, including the impact of climate change to us all, and how the continent intends to respond to the risks posed.  Unlike many other platforms, our magazine will be delivered directly to our business organizations, trade facilitation agencies, foreign embassies in Kenya, our embassies overseas, the East African Community Secretariat and all relevant departments of the EAC member states, thereby ensuring that you, our partner, are visible to all the relevant sectors. We want the Guide to be instructive, directive and inspirational. It shall not be a replica of anything else in the industry. We are looking to having the Editorial team and contributors holding round tables with the regional policy makers to discuss some of the content and to push for implementation of the regional agenda. We are also looking to having the Business Guide combining international standards with regional identity, so that readers recognize it is a magazine for East African issues. It shall reflect the mentality of the editorial team and finally, ensure that is attractive in the presentation of information on all pages. The Guide shall have clarity and more value added than just dissemination of news. We are looking at making the publication “digital” after the production of the first few hard copy editions, so that our readers can have easier access to the publication. We want to thank you most sincerely for partnering with us and look forward to continued, and more beneficial, relationship with you and your organization in the coming days.   We are truly grateful for your support!
