This chapter explores the trade policy-making process in four East African countries: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. The focus is mainly on the institutional framework, agenda setting and consultative processes. The choice of the four out of five countries making up the East African Community (EAC) is informed by the accessibility of basic information regarding the trade policy process. Information for Burundi, the other East African country left out, was found to be too scanty to furnish useful insights. In each of the four countries, information on the trade policy process was gleaned from country reports based on interviews with key actors in each of the countries. This was complemented by earlier works related to the trade policy-making process in some of the countries in the sample.
