  • Abstract:
    Trade between the United States and East African countries

    (defi ned in this special report as Burundi, Kenya,

    Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) has grown substantially

    in recent years, reaching $1.3 billion in value in 2007.

    Between 1997 and 2007, U.S. exports to East Africa increased

    at an average annual rate of 9.1 percent per year,

    while imports grew by 7.7 percent.

    In 2007, 57 percent of U.S. trade with East Africa took

    place via seagoing vessel, and 22 percent by air. Trade by

    air has increased slightly faster than vessel trade, at average

    annual rates of 9.3 percent and 7.8 percent, respectively.

    The remaining 21 percent of U.S. trade with East Africa

    was classifi ed by the U.S. Census Bureau as being

    transported via “other” modes. The exports in the “other”

    category consisted mostly of U.S. shipments of airplanes

    to Kenya. These shipments cannot be classifi ed as trade

    by air because the aircraft itself was the commodity being

    shipped, as opposed to being the vehicle that transports

    commodities.
