NAI and EAC strengthen ties
The Nordic Africa Institute and the East African Community will begin to work more closely together following last week's signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two parties. The aim is to mobilize NAI's research in support of the ECA's regional integration agenda. NAI’s director Carin Norberg attended the signing ceremony in Arusha, Tanzania. She said the MoU would expand research activities and knowledge to the mutual benefit of both NAI and the EAC. The EAC is the regional intergovernmental organisation of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. The organisation aims at establishing a sustainable East African economic and political bloc.
