Why this project?

Burundi being seen as the weakest link of the group of the East African Countries, the majority of Burundians are still up to now asking on the process on the chances of success of Burundi in that new dynamic of regional integration. Thus, periodic analysis of impacts at various levels, on the opportunities and ways to take full advantage of this integration and in a progressive way remain then necessary. The success of the integration process depends on the commitment of states to strengthen their economic, social and political relationship through real ownership of the process by the respective populations. It is clear that in Burundi the different stages of the process are not yet mastered, the opinion is under-informed, the content of the various existing protocols is beyond the reach of the majority of the population, and the benefits of integration have not yet been sufficiently explained.

What:

Through advocacy, contribute to an effective integration of Burundi in EAC by an improved investment climate and conditions.

How:

TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) will provide technical support to Forum for the Reinforcement of the Civil Society (FORSC) to implement this project.
