Committee on General Purposes

The functions of this Committee would revolve around the oversight of the progress made in the implementation of those provisions of the Treaty, which address matters of general application on the EAC in relation to the role and functions of the EALA. 

In that regard, the Committee would initiate studies and investigation, call for and receive reports of the work of bodies, programmes and projects on such matters.  As the Committee may find appropriate upon the receipt of reports from EAC Sectoral Committees; they would refer certain matters to such Committees for further study and report.

In carrying out their functions, the Committee would hinge on the oversight of the work of the EAC and Sectoral Committees emanating from the following provisions of the Treaty; though not restricted or limited to them:
(a)    Chapter Sixteen - Co-operation in the Development of Human Resources, Science and Technology.
(b)    Chapter Twenty One - Health, Social and Cultural Activities.
(c)    Chapter Twenty Two - Enhancing the Role of Women in Socio-Economic Development.
