The purpose of the project is to promote coherence between Uganda's policies, laws and regulations and the EAC Common Market Protocol for increased intra EAC trade and investment flows. The project will also contribute to a more predictable regulatory environment for trade and investment by supporting Uganda's commitments to stand-still the introduction of additional measures that hinder the implementation of the EAC Common Market Protocol (CMP).
The project objectives supports both SEATINI's broad objective to "strengthen stakeholders' capacity to influence trade, tax, and related policies and processes through information generation and dissemination, capacity building and advocacy, alliance building and networking" and the Hub's objectives to "double the value of intra-regional trade" and "increase compliance to regional trade and investment agreements in East Africa".
