Non-Tariff Barriers on Selected Goods Faced by Exporters from the EAC to the EU and USA

Worldwide, the relatively low tariff levels are now less of a burden for exporters than non-tariff barriers. Despite their preferential market access to target markets like the EU and US, East African exporters continue to face non-tariff barriers such as license requirement and standards which hamper the full realization of their trade potential.

This study analyzes the implications of such non-tariff barriers for East African Community (EAC) exporters in these markets, particularly in the the coffee and horticulture sectors, and proposes options to address them through trade negotiations and other means.
