In the East African Community (EAC) region, coordinating policies and regulations on tourism was geared towards increased coordination and pooling of resources towards tourism-related improvements in areas of improved road and air access, fewer visa restrictions, increased cross-border movement of people and goods, and more harmonization of national policies as well as on safety and security. This objective can only be achieved through creation of supranational structures with clear defined roles. In EAC region, the East African Tourism Wildlife Coordination Agency (EATWCA) is mandated with this task of marketing the region as a single tourism destination.
