East Africa is an economically promising market, having seen an 18.5% increase in FDI in the past 6 years. Its economy is expected to grow 7.5% in the next 5-7 years. It is the continent's most regionally integrated market and offers businesses access to a market of 144 million consumers. 

East African nations are diversifying and growing their economy. This translates to opportunities in natural resources, transport & logistics, manufacturing and services.
