Kenya - 30 November 2012

The fundamental objectives for the formation of these sub regional and regional integration schemes are to enable the economies of the member countries participating in such arrangement to achieve, individually and collectively higher levels of economic development that would have otherwise proved elusive. The gains and losses of these integration movements particularly the Tripartite Agreement signed to enhance these developments is the thrust of this paper.
