EATUC in partnership with LO-Norway organized the technical planning meeting for EATUC 2015 Tax Justice Campaign which took place on 4th to 5th November 2014, Tansoma Hotel in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. The technical planning meeting provided a platform for the trade union participants and others selected from civil society actors in the region and beyond to learn, update each other and share analysis and strategies on curbing the current situation of reported millions and millions of dollars being lost through Illicit Financial Flows (IFF), mass government corruption, smuggling, organized crime, taxavoidance/evasion, money laundering, and international trade manipulations.


In East Africa, ITUC-Africa deplores the political instability in Somalia where for more than two decades it has proved impossible for central government to operate in peace and security. This grave situation has forced thousands of Somalis to flee to neighbouring countries and needs to be addressed urgently. South Sudan is also becoming a major area of concern where the country’s newly acquired statehood is under threat. There is urgent need for Sudan and South Sudan to cooperate and resolve their differences over borders and other issues peacefully.
