Finland: EAC integration vital in Africa growth, says envoy

The Finish government has expressed its commitment towards supporting the East African Community (EAC), noting that the significance of regional integration is not only for East Africans, but also an important source of growth for the continent as a whole. Finish ambassador to Tanzania Pekka Hukka made the remarks in Arusha when speaking soon after the EAC secretary general, ambassador Dr Richard Sezibera received credentials from the envoy as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and Permanent Representative of his country in the EAC. Speaking at the function, Ambassador Hukka said his appointment was out of his government’s commitment to deepen its cooperation with the EAC, noting that the significance of regional integration is not only for East Africans, but an important source of growth for the continent as well. Expressing his gratitude to the Finnish government for its dynamic support to the EAC, the Secretary General shed light on the region’s increased market size, which has led the Community to expand on cross-border production chains. Finland is a regular contributor to the Partnership Fund, a basket fund which enables the Community to make significant achievements in various sectors. For many years the Finnish government has remained an important partner in promoting regional and economic integration in East Africa.
