EAC Launches Common Market Scorecard

A new scorecard, assessing progress toward developing the EAC Common Market was launched on Wednesday 19th February 2014 by the EAC. The Scorecard which measures Partner States' compliance to the free movement of capital, services and goods was developed over a period of 18 months by the World Bank Group at the request of the EAC Secretariat.

The Scorecard notably identifies at least 63 non-conforming measures in the trade of services and 51 non-tariff barriers affecting trade in goods while in the area of Capital, only 2 of the 20 operations covered by the Common Market Protocol are free of restrictions in all of the EAC Partner States.
