Regional Trade Integration in East Africa: Trade and Revenue Impacts of the Planned East African Community Customs Union

Lucio Castro

International Trade from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper provides empirical estimates for import and revenue implications that would follow implementation of the planned customs union between the East African Community member states Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. We use 2002 trade and trade policy data for the three countries to simulate the effect of the common external tariff and other trade policy changes that will follow the customs union implementation on import flows and customs revenue. We also discuss customs exemptions and the effect of the customs union implementation on balance of payments.
