How we work

MARKUP directs support through two windows: The EAC Window and the Partner States Window.

  • Through the EAC Window, MARKUP supports the EAC efforts to increase regional trade and exports to international markets.
  • The support includes strengthening the EAC Secretariat in its ability to coordinate implementation of regional policy and build an enabling environment for SMEs.
The Programme also builds capacity and strengthens small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to identify and address critical barriers to trade and to maximise opportunities that regional integration would afford for SMEs. The work in the Partner States Window is tailored to the specific needs of each Partner State. Targeting SMEs, sector associations and Government institutions, the Programme supports initiatives to address selected supply side constraints and enhance competitiveness.
