The Picture: An update on Economic Corridor projects, October 2012

The One Stop Border Post concept is gaining in popularity among government agencies and the private sector in East Africa especially since its implementation impacts positively on the region. As a sub set of the larger, but less well known Integrated Border Management (IBM) concept, One Stop Border Posts are being implemented in well over 50 border crossings in Africa.
TradeMark Africa is funding the implementation of the OSBP concept at Taveta and Busia in Kenya; Busia, Mutukula, Mirama Hills and Elegu in Uganda; Mutukula, Holili, Tunduma and Kabanga in Tanzania; Kobero in Burundi and at Kagitumba in Rwanda. TradeMark Africa’s approach involves direct investment in infrastructure, both in buildings and civil works at the border posts listed above.
