“Embrace your Opportunity”
A data facility, an information centre- a one stop centre for all information on EAC matters.
The Ministry of EAC Affairs Resource Centre was officially launched by Minister of Information & National Guidance Ms Rose Namayanja Nsereko in July 2014 at the Ministry Main Board room level 9.
The centre has since attracted students doing research and others seeking EAC information for different reasons. Many people have come to the Resource center asking questions that range from their individual benefits to the general milestones of the process of integration.
Utilizing the information provided for in this Resource Centre, making research from it and also collecting data as and when, enables every interested person to fully participate and be a part of many developmental openings in the EAC.
Majorly set to attract students and business community persons in and around Kampala, the MEACA resource centre has both understandable and user-friendly information on EAC integration process.
At the time of its inception, the Resource centre was a relief because the Ministry of EAC Affairs had a challenge of low levels of awareness across the country. Ugandans didn’t know much about the EAC. Things have since changed and there has been a shift in knowledge with awareness levels shooting from 32% in 2010 to 66% in 2012.
The MEACA resource centre has various resources which include EAC documentations and publications, Partner States official publications, former EAC publications, general textbooks, publications on regional and international organizations, periodicals including professional journals, newspapers/articles, audio-visual collection and internet resources and databases.
The Ministry of EAC’s mandate is to “steer Uganda’s regional integration agenda in accordance with the objectives of the Treaty for Establishment of East African Community,” and also the Ministry exists to “ensure that Ugandans benefit from the East African Community integration.”
