The business and investment landscape is changing in East Africa, and quickly. A migrating and growing population, emerging economies and an increase in production are leaving their mark on the region's environment. These provide you with a variety of opportunities in industry, tourism, water, energy, financial services, insurance, agriculture and agro-allied processing.

Consider these:
- The East African region (Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda) covers an area of 1.8 million square kilometres with a combined population of about 100 million.
- It has a vast potential in mineral, water, energy, forestry and wildlife resources.
- It also has agricultural, livestock, industrial and tourism development.
- Its people have a common history, language, culture and infrastructure.

The East African Community is expected to present a good investment platform for both domestic and foreign investors due to their economies of scale. What are your options for consideration in the face of the emerging opportunities?
