The supplementary budget was earmarked for support in activities related to Agriculture, Trade and Customs, the EAC Financial Management Harmonisation Project and the strengthening of the East and Southern Africa-India Ocean (ESA-IO) Maritime Security Project.

Last Year, EALA approved a budget amounting to $131,806,032.


The budget’s priorities then were to consolidate the Common Market; completion of negotiations and movement towards the East African Monetary Union Protocol; investment promotion and Private Sector development; co-operation in cross-border infrastructure; enhancing the extractive and processing industries; implementation of the critical activities of EAC Food Security and the mainstreaming of policies, programmes and projects related to gender.

The House shall also deliberate on the Report of the Committee on Accounts on Internal Audit Systems and the Report of the Committee on General Purpose on the EAC Annual Report for the period 2011/12.
