East African Community Trade a Success

The London-based International Growth Centre published in April 2016 a study titled "Regional Trade Agreements and the Pacification of Eastern Africa" by Thierry Mayer and Mathias Thoenig.

The paper quantifies the economic and security gains to be expected from the deepening/extension of the East African Community (EAC) agreement, a regional trading club that includes Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, and South Sudan. The study reports significant gains in trade since the resurrection of the EAC in 2000.
