Signing of the MoU between the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite and DFID

The COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite and the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID), this week entered into a co-operation agreement that will further deepen and strengthen the cooperation between them. DFID and the Tripartite have been working closely together in strengthening the Tripartite (which is at present a coordination arrangement between COMESA, EAC and SADC) to deepen regional integration, economic growth and poverty reduction in Africa. It is also aimed at building capacity of the Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and the promotion of donor coordination so as to achieve greater alignment and harmonisation of external assistance with the Tripartite’s regional priorities and programmes. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) outlines the basis for a long-term partnership between the Tripartite and DFID and formalises DFID’s existing relationship with the Tripartite Task Force through current support programmes (e.g. TradeMark-Southern Africa and TradeMark-East Africa) and provides for expanded future cooperation.
