Dear Friends,
There is increased international business interest in the East African Community (EAC). The EAC is a regional organization and an integrated market composed of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Burundi. The market size is composed of approximately 144 million people, an emerging middle class, with consumption growing in volume and variety. The GDP growth reached as high as 8% in some of these countries in 2012, outpacing the BRICS.
In recognition of the EAC’s economic potential, President Obama launched the Trade Africa Initiative, aimed to support regional economic integration and trade as well as increased trade and investment between the region and the United States. The Commerce-led U.S.-EAC Commercial Dialogue is the primary tool of engagement with the U.S. business community under the Initiative.
It also aims to foster public-private partnerships and support the East African governments in strengthening the countries’ business environments. Learn more about the opportunities in key sectors – ICT, energy, infrastructure/construction, agribusiness and medical, the Trade Africa Initiative, and how to do business in East Africa.
Please join the Eastern Africa Diaspora Business Council (EADBC), General Electric (GE), IBM, Department of Commerce (DoC), 20Qube, Department of State (DoS) and many others as we discuss “Emerging Opportunities in East Africa”
