The Treaty for Establishment of the East African Community was signed on 30 November 1999 and entered into force on 7 July 2000 following its ratification by the original three Partner States – Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The Republic of Rwanda and the Republic of Burundi acceded to the EAC Treaty on 18 June 2007 and became full Members of the Community with effect from 1 July 2007.Mission and Vision

The Vision of EAC is a prosperous, competitive, secure, stable and politically united East Africa; and the Mission is to widen and deepen Economic, Political, Social and Culture integration in order to improve the quality of life of the people of East Africa through increased competitiveness, value added production, trade and investments.

The EAC’s core values are:

• Professionalism
• Accountability
• Transparency
• Teamwork
• Unity in Diversity
• Allegiance to EAC ideals

Aims and Objectives

The EAC aims at widening and deepening co-operation among the Partner States in, among others, political, economic and social fields for their mutual benefit. To this extent the EAC countries established a Customs Union in 2005 and a Common Market in 2010. The next phase of the integration will see the bloc enter into a Monetary Union and ultimately become a Political Federation of the East African States.

Enlargement of the Community

The realization of a large regional economic bloc encompassing Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda with a combined population of more than 143.5 million people (2014*), land area of 1.82 million sq kilometers and a combined Gross Domestic Product of $110.3 billion (2014*), bears great strategic and geopolitical significance and prospects of a renewed and reinvigorated East African Community.

Current status

The regional integration process is at a high pitch at the moment as reflected by the encouraging progress of the East African Customs Union, the establishment of the Common Market in 2010 and the signing of the Protocol for the establishment of the East African Monetary Union by the Heads of State in November 2013.For Safaris, Climbing, Beach Holidays, Volunteering and Cultural tourism book through us: philip@africansafaris-tz.com…www.africansafaris-tz.com…Call us +255 655 39 38 31
