Non Tariff Barriers
Elimination of non tarrif in zanzibar
Zanzibar and other East African Community Partner States have committed themselves
to a Time Bound Programme on elimination of Non-Tariff Barriers (NBTs) that undermine
available market access and smooth flow of trade across the borders. In this regard,
a legally binding enforceable mechanism has been formulated with twofold objectives;.
- Facilitate removal of NTBs including quantitative or like restrictions or prohibitions and any form of administrative obstacles to trade among Partner States.
- Set up institutional structures for elimination of NTBs. To this end, each Partner State is expected to establish a Zanzibar National Monitoring Committee and a Focal Point for purposes of identifying, monitoring and elimination of NTBs. Discourage imposition of new NTBs through sanctions.
