The East African Community plans to set up a Sh1.86 billion ($20 million) Private Sector Fund with aim of deepening the participation of the private sector in the EAC integration process.
EAC Secretary General (SG) Dr Richard Sezibera said the proposed fund to be set up in close collaboration with the private sector would be launched by the regional economic bloc’s Heads of State at their Summit in November this year.
Joint East African Legislative Assembly parliamentarians, Kenya Chapter, and the National parliamentary Committee on Regional Integration held a one day sensitization programme on the East African Community Integration process for Lamu County stakeholders in Lamu, where leaders agreed to fully support the EAC treaties, Institutions and Organs.
