EACCIA Forging Synergies

Needed synergies should be developed to include supporting measures that ensures that EACCIA represents national chambers’ interests and that its representation is aligned to the changing East African private sector structure. In addition, it advocates for national chambers to be structured so that they can act on a regional scale, with EACCIA playing a leading role in promoting regional integration. The need to adopt a cluster approach across key sectors of the EAC economy are also be explored, as a means to ensure greater regional integration as this would help to reap economies of scale. In addition, a cluster approach makes it easier to promote the sectors at regional level and to explore areas of complementarities as opposed to competition, and ultimately to promote EAC as a whole.
