EAC and Organisational Development & Outreach
The regional integration process is in full swing as reflected by the encouraging progress of the East African Customs Union, the establishment of the Common Market and the implementation of the East African Monetary Union Protocol. Furthermore, the integration process has widened substantially with the admission of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2022 and the Federal Republic of Somalia in 2023. This fast pace of EAC integration necessitates constant development of EAC at an organisational level to steer the integrational process effectively and efficiently. Furthermore, clear and tangible communication on the benefits and impacts of regional integration for citizens is a key task of the EAC Secretariat.
