Union Douaniere et Economique de l’Afrique Centrale (UDEAC) (Customs and Economic Union of Central Africa)

The Customs and Economic Union of Central Africa, established by the Brazzaville Treaty in 1966, forms a customs union with free trade between members and a common external tariff for imports from other countries. The members of UDEAC are Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. UDEAC has signed a treaty for the establishment of a Economic and Monetary Community in Central Africa to promote the entire process of sub-regional integration.

As with COMESA and ECOWAS, although there are no direct preferences offered to South African goods, benefits to contractors operating in the region should be explored.
