International Economics, in Consortium with Cardno Emerging Markets Belgium, provided support for the beneficial integration of the East African Community (EAC) States into the world economy, thereby contributing to sustainable development and poverty reduction in these states.

The project aimed to develop a Framework for the elimination of Non-Tariff Barriers (NTBs) and improve monitoring of the implementation of the framework, as well as foster trade development and expansion under the Tripartite FTA. Under the second component of the project, the Team would develop an EAC Export Promotion Strategy (2017-2030) and create awareness of the trading opportunities, in particular for women and youth entrepreneurs.
