The new East African Business Council (EABC) Code of Conduct has been formalized.
This is intended to bring the highest ethical standards in business dealings across the region.
The agreement document had been endorsed by EABC members during their Summit held in Arusha.
Dennis Karera, the EABC Chairperson said, “By endorsing the Code of Conduct, members demonstrated their commitment to offering safe and reliable products and services, which will strengthen regional integration by fostering consistent implementation of business practices that ensure service/product quality, enhance customer satisfaction, facilitate commercial partnerships, and build trust within the region.”
EABC is the bridge connecting the Private Sector participation in the East African Community (EAC) integration process and to improve region’s business.
The code of ethics developed is expected to cover suppliers, contractors and agents working in the EAC.
