The meeting also provided the opportunity for members to discuss the appointment of a fulltime EAEO coordinator. Resulting from an advert a number of applications had been received and an appointment could possibly be made in early December. The meeting also noted that offices which would accommodate both the EAEO and the Association of Tanzanian Employers had been found in Arusha close to the East African Community.
