Harmonization of Commercial Laws

Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda

ICF’s partnership with the East African Community Secretariat sought to bring the EAC closer to total economic integration by harmonizing commercial laws within the EAC. Establishing a synchronised legal framework for partner states will reduce the private sector’s burden of having to deal with different laws when doing cross-border transactions. The project has outlined the current EAC partner state laws governing commercial transactions and recommended harmonization of commercial laws in the region. The project also developed a commercial code (set of laws) for the region, which is pending adoption.
