East African Community (EAC) will attain its potential if it eliminates barriers to free movement of people, goods and services -President Ruto

President William Ruto has said the East African Community (EAC) will attain its potential if it eliminates barriers to free movement of people, goods and services.

The President said many years after independence, the bloc’s borders still inhibit rather than facilitate trade.

He said a borderless EAC will create opportunities and prosperity for all.

“It is our place as leaders and citizens of the EAC region to work together to further integration,” he noted.

He said this today during Uganda’s 60th Independence Day celebrations at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala.

President Yoweri Museveni congratulated President Ruto for winning the General Election on August 9.

Other heads of State and governments at the Independence fete were Presidents Évariste Ndayishimiye (Burundi and EAC Chairman), Salva Kiir (South Sudan), Hussein Ali Mwinyi (Zanzibar) and Hassan Sheikh Mohamud (Somalia).
