Under our current Strategic Plan, 2011-2015, EABC has the following 5 Key Priorities:  


EABC Institutional Strengthening:  A two pronged approach will be used namely: a) transforming the unique position and mandate the EABC holds into a competitive advantage and b) seeking financial independence for the institution, to reduce dependence on external funding. 


Policy Advocacy:  EABC will seek to enhance its role in driving policy change on issues affecting the business community in the EAC. This will be achieved through evidence based and strong advocacy towards the full implementation of the EAC Customs Union and Common Market Protocols and effective participation in the on-going Tripartite FTA, Monetary Union and EPA Negotiations.


Enhanced Membership Services: EABC will deliver services and products that complement its key role in policy advocacy and which add value to members.


Partnership strengthening:  EABC will strengthen its partnership with its key stakeholders who include the business community, the EAC and all its organs, EABC National Focal Points and development partners.  EABC works to leverage partner synergies to efficiently and effectively fulfill its mandate. 


EABC visibility:  With a view to attracting new members, retaining old members and driving policy advocacy, EABC will seek to ensure its activities receive national, regional and international attention.
