President Yoweri Museveni the newly elected First Vice Chairperson of the African Union and Tanzanian President John Magufuli have agreed to meet over talks on the Economic Partnership Agreement
Kenya and Rwanda have already signed the deal but it won’t be operational until all the East African Community member states sign the agreement, which is protested by Tanzania.
EAC Heads of State led by their chairman President John Magufuli agreed in September to push for more time to allow more deliberations and negotiations on the matter.
President Museveni says they need to discuss the issue, point on point because scattering it without discussion would be a mistake.
The Tanzanian parliament already voted against signing of the EPA negotiated between the EU and the East African Community.
