The improved trade relations come a year after Kenya and Tanzania agreed to eliminate barriers.

In March 2021, the two countries said several barriers were hindering the smooth flow of trade and people and agreed to form better relations.

As reported by The Exchange Africa, at the time, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Tanzania Head of State Samia Suluhu Hassan announced new measures to facilitate trade.

Among them was establishing a joint team of experts to address the disjointed enforcement of cross-border Covid-19 containment protocols, one of the most pronounced non-tariff trade barriers between the two nations.
