Abstract

This paper documents the trade patterns and trade policy in the rice sector in the East African Community (EAC) partner states, with particular reference to Uganda. Over 40 percent of intra-regional rice trade is informal trade, in part because cross-border taxes and barriers other than duty appear excessive to traders. Moreover, the circumvention of regulations and the unilateral policies pursued by EAC partners, and exceptions complicate implementation of CET.
