Experts ask for enhancing role of the media for African integration

Dodoma, Jul 21 (Prensa Latina) Prior to a summit tomorrow of leaders of the East African Community (EAC), experts from that organization advocated today in Tanzania to strengthen the role of the media in promoting subregional integration.

The senior official of the EAC secretariat in Arusha, Flavian Businge, stated that the bloc is willing to support the communication media system in order to spread more and better the economic benefits of the bloc.

She considered, that there are still non-tariff barriers between the States that make up the organization, which hinders cross-border trade.

Businge uttered those words, after in the last hours in a segment of the EAC with high-level officials it was recommended to the Summit of Heads of State and Government that they approve the creation of the East African Media Council.

They advocated the formation of the East African Community Publishers Guild, a subregional body made up of seven countries: the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan.

According to reports, on the other hand, the EAC Summit, which will be held in the city of Arusha, has among its objectives to agree on a roadmap to establish a common market that enhances commercial ties between the states that make up the bloc.
