East African Community

The East African Community (EAC) is an intergovernmental organization comprising the five east African countries Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. The organization is headquartered in Arusha. The EAC is one of the pillars of the African Economic Community. The EAC is a potential precursor to the establishment of the East African Federation, a proposed federation of its five members into a single state. In 2010, the EAC launched its own common market for goods, labor and capital within the region, with the goal of a common currency by 2012 and full political federation in 2015.
