Welcome to the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture.
The East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA) is an organization which was established and owned by the three national chambers, namely, the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI), the Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (UNCCI) and Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA). EACCIA has its origins in the Association of the East African Chambers of Commerce, which was formed in 2003, through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that spelt out potential areas of cooperation that aimed at increasing cross border trade, in light of the EAC regional integration process. EACCIA was registered in 2005 under the Companies Act of the Republic of Kenya. Its headquarters were initially housed at the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Ufanisi House, in Nairobi. However, it was agreed that, its Headquarters of the EACCIA should move to Arusha, Tanzania.
EACCIA will be a credible partner for government in the creation of a business environment conducive to the development of a strong private sector throughout the East African Community.
Our mission is to strengthen the private sector in East Africa through influencing policy at national and community level, supporting national chambers and strengthening cooperation and partnership between the public and private sectors across the East African Community.
We will achieve this by:
- Articulating well developed proposals for removing constraints facing business, industrial & agricultural community
- Promoting unity amongst stakeholders within the private sector
- Collaborating closely with Governments to make the East African Community more attractive to investors
