East Africa Trade and Transport Facilitation Project—PID

Description

The East African Community (EAC) is the regional intergovernmental organization of the Republics of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.

The EAC aims at widening and deepening regional trade and cooperation among the member states and, consequently, to improve the international competitiveness of the region.

To have a real impact in terms of increasing regional trade flows, the transport corridors through Kenya and Uganda (the Northern Corridor) and Tanzania and Rwanda (the Central Corridor) as well as road and rail links between Kenya and Tanzania need to become more efficient.

East Africa Trade and Transport Facilitation Project is conceived as a multi-sector program to facilitate further trade integration in the region by addressing institutional, legal, and infrastructure constraints. Specifically, it will support EAC trade integration by (i) providing technical assistance and equipment to implement the joint customs administration, (ii) providing technical assistance, financial support, and equipment to improve efficiency at the main border posts, ports, and regional road and railway corridors, with a specific focus on the integration of railways through support to the joint concession of the Kenya-Uganda Railways and its interconnections with the Tanzanian network.
