|dc.description.abstract||Each year the Chairperson of the Council submits an annual report on the activities and achievements of the Community to all key stakeholders in line with Article 49 (2) (c) of the Treaty.
In this year’s report we again illustrate the accomplishments of the various Organs and Institutions of the Community within their respective mandates, missions and missions.
Since our last Annual Report, the Community has witnessed a number of important developments in our quest for greater and deeper integration for the people of East Africa.
The signing of the East African Monetary Union Protocol by the Heads of State in November, 2013, and operationalisation of the Single Customs Territory is a clear testimony that the Community is moving forward. I wish to register my appreciation to the Summit of Heads of State for their continued guidance, plus the Partner States, development partners, the private sector and civil society organizations for their unwavering support to the EAC integration agenda.||en_US
