Madame, the members of the East African Community have collectively agreed on a raft of measures geared toward the rapid implementation of a monetary union and a single currency by 2025.

Individually each EAC member has a national vision to guide its socio-economic transformation, from Vision Burundi 2025; Kenya’s Vision 2030; Rwanda’s Vision 2020 and soon Vision 2050; Tanzania’s Development Vision 2025 and Uganda’s Vision 2040.
