  • It is relatively easy to assess the progress, achievements, and possible future direction of an existing regional integration pact. However, evaluating the prospects for a successful revival of the East African Community (EAC), a regional integration scheme that collapsed in 1977, is arguably a more difficult task. This paper examines recent attempts to revive the EAC, especially as it concerns the harmonisation of macroeconomic policies, infrastructure services, and movement of people, goods and services.

En outre, les partenaires disposent désormais d’une grande variété d’options d’appartenance : de nombreuses nations sont déjà membres du COMESA et un pays de la zone a rejoint la SADC ...
