East Africa Export Fund (EA Export Fund) is an export promotion project that seeks to support companies in Tanzania to become export led and enjoy the benefits that the regional integrations and export markets offer.
The project offers technical and financial intermediation support for companies operating in Tanzania as a way to build their capacities, exposure, and understanding on how to start and manage an export business.
East African Community, like other regional blocs across the continent offers massive market opportunities for locally produced products that can help transform these local companies into international businesses.
Inter-trade in Africa is still very low, accounting for less than 20% of the total trade that Africa does with the rest of the world, this calls for multi-stakeholder initiatives in ensuring that tariff and non-tariff barriers are addressed, but also the capacity of local companies is built to become export viable companies.
EA Export Fund is a flagship project by SSC Group
