Aims & Purposes

We aim to facilitate successful participation in the economic development of Eastern Africa by member companies. We act as a channel of communication between Members, Governments, and other relevant agencies, seeking to:

  • Represent and sustain existing foreign private investment in the region;
  • Co-operate with governments in promoting new foreign private investment;
  • Assist our membership in the successfull conduct of their business;
  • Provide authoritative information on the political & economic situations in the countries covered.

The Association exists to support the business activities of its members in the countries covered by providing channels of communication and lobbying on common issues, either through the various diplomatic missions, the international financial institutions or directly with the respective national government.  There is no other organisation that performs quite this function on behalf of foreign investors.
