Steering East Africa Towards a Customs Union: Suggestions from a Pilot Study

This book synthesises three country reports (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) which are outcomes of the pilot phase of a collaborative study on regional integration in Africa. It generates incremental knowledge on costs and benefits to Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania of the on-going integration efforts. Without knowledge of the costs and benefits accruing to each member state and a sober understanding of available mechanisms for compensating losers, fears for skewed distribution of benefits and costs among partner states will continue to hamper the pace at which integration efforts in the sub-region move forward.

Overall, the Forum was expected to address how to improve access of financial services for the majority of Kenyans.
