A study of the East African common market composed of Kenya, Uganda, and Tanganyika. The Memorandum assesses the gains and losses resulting from the operation of this common market, both from the point of view of East Africa as a whole and that of the three participants individually; considers the gains likely to result from continuation of the market, in either its present or an expanded form; evaluates several measures that might improve its performance; and suggests a course of action for the East African governments.
