Traders From Kenya And Tanzania Might Smile Again After The Two Countries Made This Declaration

Kenyan and Tanzanian traders are yet to smile after the Government of Kenya and Tanzania signed a joint communique to end the ongoing trade restrictions between the two countries. The agreement was signed after a three-day bilateral meeting that was attended by members of the technical team from Kenya and Tanzania. The meeting was fruitful as it solved 12 out of 30 trade barriers that have restricted the two Countries from bilaterally working together in the business market.

The agreement was authorized and signed by Tanzanian Ministry of Trade PS Doto James and the known Kenyan Ambassador Johnston Weru following a three-day bilateral meeting in Mombasa-Kenya.

The three-day bilateral meeting managed to solve issues relating to customs, movement of persons, standards, agriculture, and transport. The committee said that the remaining 18 issues were touching administrative and, therefore, required sometimes to be dealt with and the recommendation to be given before December 2021.

Kenyans won big from the meeting as many issues were solved among which are; ratification of the SPS protocol by all partners states, the Tanzanian Coffee board charging 1% of the invoice value on Coffee transferred from Kenya and restriction to ports of entry for crop protection products in Tanzania.

The agreement came following the previous talks by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu.
