Overview of EAC
The East African Community (EAC) is a regional intergovernmental organisation founded in 1967. The work of the EAC is guided by its Treaty (2000) which established the Community.
EAC Partner States
The EAC is currently made up of six Partner States: Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Admission to the Community is guided by criteria spelt out in Article 3 of the EAC Treaty.
The EAC organs are the Summit, the Council of Ministers, the Co-ordinating Committee, the Sectoral Committees, the East African Court of Justice, the East African Legislative Assembly and the Secretariat.
The EAC also has eight institutions, three of which became operational in July 2015. All have their own leadership and their budgets are drawn from the consolidated, annual EAC budget.
