The Public-Private Sector Dialogue (PPD) for Trade and Investment Programme mainstreams advocacy throughout TMEA’s project clusters, i.e. in transport and logistics, trade facilitation, customs and tax, standards, NTBs and export capability. The programme’s core objective is to enhance private sector organisations’ (PSO) capacity to proactively and positively influence policy reforms, to accelerate dispute resolution and sustain political buy-in to boost trade and investment in the EAC. The Programme contributes to core TMEA corporate results outlined below:
Both formal and informal women traders in Africa, particularly in Tanzania fail to optimize the trade and business potentials and opportunities across the region mainly due inadequate capacity and lack of knowledge on doing business in the region.
The Rwanda Private Sector Federation increases its level of success in advocating for improvement in the business environment. This will contribute to achieving a private sector led sustainable economic growth and social development which will positively influence regional integration policies and practices for growth in trade.
KAM positively influencing the trade regulatory framework and practices; and improves and increases the implementation of quality advocacy campaigns towards the East African Community Integration. This will positively contribute to regional integration policies and practices for growth in trade in East Africa.
