EAC Regional Integration
Business needs to understand the objectives, process and the likely outcomes of Regional Integration of the East African Co-operation. Regional integration needs strong regional business advocacy to move in the right directions at the right times. Below are highlights for regional integration;

Regulation:  Regional integration is achieved by changing regulation and creating new regulation. A Customs Union or a Common Market is achieved by establishing regional rules and regulations that supersede National ones.
Investors: Regional integration is an important vehicle to increase Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The creation of one single economic entity with a larger market and potential can have large direct and indirect effects on the whole local economy.

Competition: Regional integration aims to increase intra-regional competition to find the most efficient regional value chain.

Technology: Regional integration, through increased FDI and a more stable business environment, hopes to increase technological progress which in turn drives competitiveness.

Globalisation: The very essence of regional integration is to help groups of countries increase their weight in global trade and negotiations.

Customers: Successful regional integration creates larger regional markets for companies, as well as increasing their customer base in the external world.
