Join the Centre for Dynamic Markets, in partnership with AfriCatalysts, for a discussion on how Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania in the East African Community (EAC), have advanced regional infrastructural integration.
The increased prioritisation of investment in infrastructure over the past decade has boosted trade in Africa. However, the infrastructure financing gap is daunting, particularly for transnational projects. In order to boost the development impact, it is necessary to take a holistic approach that ensures that regional arteries connect rural communities and local industries to markets. Investors cite the lack of harmonised regional rules and regulations as a barrier for deepening and expanding infrastructural services.
