About EABC


The East African Business Council (EABC) is the apex body of business associations of the Private Sector and Corporates from the 5 East African Countries. It was established in 1997 to foster the interests of the Private Sector in the integration process of the East African Community. Originally comprising members from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, its membership was expanded after 2007 to include private sector from Burundi and Rwanda. 


EABC’s raison d’être is to seek change in public policy in order to promote a business environment conducive to business formation and growth. EABC therefore provides a regional platform through which the business community can present their concerns at the EAC policy level, with the overall aim of creating a more conducive business environment through targeted policy reforms. Additionally, EABC also works towards promoting private sector’s regional & global competitiveness in trade and investment through addressing challenges experienced by EABC members at organizational and firm level and through provision of tailored market intelligence.



EABC’s vision is to be the dynamic voice of the private sector in the East African Community, in fostering sustained economic growth and prosperity in the region.

MISSION: Our mission is to represent and promote the interests of the EAC business community; provide value added services that create new business opportunities, enhance global competitiveness of EAC businesses, and actively influence government policies to improve the enabling business environment.



In all its operations, EABC is guided by the following principles, which shape the internal culture:

  • Accountability: We are accountable to our members and stakeholders.  We manage our resources responsibly and use them efficiently to provide value for money.  We commit to being held responsible for all our actions and track all we do with appropriate documentation.


  • Balanced: We value fair balance and seek to arrive at win-win positions that are fair to all parties involved.  We are driven by the economic ideals of the EAC Integration and are not influenced by political or national agendas.  Rather, we are guided by our vision of fostering sustained economic growth and prosperity in the region and by our mission to the EAC business community. 


  • Integrity: We value ethical behaviour and operate with transparency and lack of ambiguity.  Our actions are clear, consistent, honest and truthful.


  • Innovation: We value the creation of new solutions to existing and new challenges.  We are dedicated to creating new policy advocacy approaches and place a premium on designing innovative solutions for the EAC business community.
