Mombasa to facilitate regional tax collection
27 June 2013, 10:04
Nairobi - Business Daily reports that in a bid to boost the flow of goods and curb dumping of cheap imports in East Africa, Uganda and Rwanda are set to join Kenya in relocating top customs officials to Mombasa.
Under the deal struck by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni and Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, Kenya has undertaken to create space for its partners to set up customs clearing units.
However, this will be done after ongoing reforms at the port which include amending Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Act to recognise East African Community (EAC) as a single customs territory, space rationalisation and expansion of berths.
