The Common Market is the second regional Integration milestone of the East African Community (EAC), which has been in force since 2010, in line with the provisions of the EAC Treaty. It follows the Customs Union, which became fully-fledged in January 2010. Even with market access commitments in professional service markets, lack of recognition of foreign qualifications and experience acts as a core impediment to trade in professional services, hindering the free movement of professionals across borders either in their capacity as individuals or as professional firms. The signed Engineers’ Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) by the EAC Partner States are one step closer to alleviating the challenge mentioned above. The signed MRAs cover the regulated professionals which include Accountants, Architects, Engineers, and Veterinarians.German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Tanzania signed an agreement with the EAC Secretariat to implement a pilot project called “Digitalisation of East African Trade and Integration (DIGEAT)”. The project’s main objective is to simplify cross-border access to the labour markets in the EAC partner states starting with engineers. More details on the project can be found on Digitalisation for East African Trade and Integration (DIGEAT) (GIZ) (
