Former Federal President of Germany, Horst Kohler said this will allow more exports coming from the economic block and encourage local innovations and companies set shop in Germany.
“We have to recognize East Africa as a common trading block like we do to European Union (EU) and ECOWAS. We have to stop looking at Kenya Uganda and Tanzania as separate markets,” said Kohler.
He however urged regional leaders to put more emphasis on implementation of joint projects to boost ease of doing business.
