TradeMark Southern Africa (TMSA) supports improvements to the trade performance and competitiveness of the Eastern and Southern Africa regions. By working with the 26-member COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite, deeper regional integration is being achieved through improved corridor infrastructure, trade policy capacity development and trade facilitation programmes.
TradeMark Southern Africa’s five-year, £100 million programme is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), and is a follow-on from the highly successful Regional Trade Facilitation Programme (RTFP).
The budget has two components - a £67 million contribution to the Tripartite Trust Account (TTA) which supports infrastructure development, and £33 million for technical and administrative support.
TradeMark Southern Africa's Project Management Unit is based in Pretoria, South Africa
