Mandate and Objectives

There are four overall purposes set out in the Agreement by the five contracting countries that are essentially the policy for the Central Corridor, namely:

  • To promote the use of the Central Corridor
  • To grant each other the right of transit in order to facilitate movement of goods through their respective territories and to provide all possible facilities for traffic in transit between them
  • To take all necessary measures for the expeditious movement of traffic and for the avoidance of unnecessary delays in the movement of goods in transit through their territories
  • To strategically position the Central corridor as the most efficient in East and Central Africa so as to contribute positively to poverty alleviation programmes in member states
