Advocacy and Monitoring of NTBs

NTBs account for a significant proportion of the high transportation costs in the EAC which are estimated to limit intra-regional trade by approximately 15% [World Bank] and constitute significant limitations to foreign direct investment.

Logistics and Advocacy

Logistics costs limit the competitive participation of a country in trade since the delivered costs of imports are higher, exports are less competitive and attraction for foreign direct investment is diminished. In Tanzania for instance, this is mainly due to poorly maintained rail and road infrastructure; inefficient operational processes and poor access to key transport hubs; overlaps in administrative processes and unclear management structure, and outdated processes and insufficient human resource capabilities.
